comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
This sounds like the closest to an authoritative answer I've seen so far. Do you have a reference to the (old?) rule that digits need a currency symbol?

comment ¿Cuál es la etimología de “sin embargo”?
"Without embargo" would have nearly the same meaning in English, "without holding back" or as said below, "without impediment." "However" means the same thing, "how ever" or "without anything getting in the way."

Thank you for the answer, however just linking to an external site is not considered a valuable answer. Can you summarize the article in your own words?

comment Is there a difference between cilantro and culantro in Spanish?
It's also called "coriander" in American English, but usually refers to the dried seeds, rather than the fresh leaves, and is usually ground and used as a spice.

comment “Major” and “minor” (emphasis of study in college)
The U.S. has technical colleges, too, which I believe correspond pretty closely to the Latin American Institutos Técnicos, and they generally don't offer degrees, per se, but often certifications, or other un-accredited diplomas.
