comment Gender illusions?
Tienes razón, precisamente esa es la razón por la que hice esta pregunta. Porque dentisto no suena ni más remotamente correcto. Pero entonces ¿porqué modista es una excepción? Pienso es evidente que electricisto y tus otros ejemplos no sean correctos, aunque ya he visto dentisto por más ridículo que suene. (1 o 2 veces) Esperemos otras respuestas a ver si alguien tiene una percepción diferente sobre el tema...

comment Gender illusions?
Yes it is just a formation, there are many words that are not in the dictionary but are accepted. Here is the link for the rules from RAE that say it doesn't matter so modisto is viable for example. Section 3, paragraph b For example "las poetas" would be accepted too.

comment Gender illusions?
Yes that's what I am asking. And why is dentisto accepted and detective or agente considered masculine too.

comment What is the imperative without pronoun of 'Saber'? Why?
@javi Exactly! "Sepa usted" is widely used but why not "Sabe tu" sounds just absurd. I guess it's just some weirdness of the language...

comment What is the imperative without pronoun of 'Saber'? Why?
Thanks for the answer. Que sepas que is rather conditional IMO and that's exactly the question, why is it used for Usted and not for the second person??

This is temporarily accepted as answer until someone can provide a reason why this form isn't used in this particular case.

comment What is the imperative without pronoun of 'Saber'? Why?
@Javi Yeah I know but not why, but oh well I guess I can't expect them to explain that... :-( Correct but never used...

comment What is the imperative without pronoun of 'Saber'? Why?
@Javi your link is only the definition. It doesn't explain the imperative or why it isn't used. It may be correct as "sabe tu" but problably 99% of the people will tell you its incorrect... I edited the question I wasn't very clear.

comment What is the imperative without pronoun of 'Saber'? Why?
Does sabe sound correct to you? "Sabe lo que soy" Shouldn't it have tilde???

comment Is there a Spanish equivalent for “OP”?
@silverCORE The fact that they exist a long time ago doesn't mean they can be compared in intensity of usage to English ones.

comment Spanish abbreviation for the United States of America
@Flimzy That is only a theory and it is not proven. As there are other theories that the first inhabitants came from Islands in Oceania to South America. So according to that theory the original ones came across the sea through Easter Island and then to Chile, South America.
