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.

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.

@hippietrail: hey just wondering, what is the difference between "definite" and "definitive"? (I know not related, but I'm curious because of the edits)

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.

comment Spanish abbreviation for the United States of America
@Alenanno: URRSS = U: Unión (de) RR:Repúblicas S: Socialistas S:Soviéticas. Now for some reason I think it is not URRSSSS because URRSSSS is too long. As you see Socialistas and Soviéticas are both plural. But I'm not sure if this is really the reason. Hmmm interesting... It is more common to call them URSS. But URRSS is correct too. This is a bit confusing for me. I'll investigate.

@Flimzy I added something at the end. Finally EUA is not accepted, as belisarius said. I added the relevant RAE link.

Use the quote tool on the formatting palette. Or just type '>' before the statement that you want to quote :-)
