comment Why isn't sunrise “Entrada del Sol”?
The sun is "coming out of hiding." We say exactly the same thing in English for the moon: "Oh look, the moon is coming out!" means the moon is appearing--not disappearing.

comment Has “fud” made it into mainstream Spanish as a word for “food?”
As far as I know, fud is just a brand name as @guifa mentioned.

comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
Well, it's not really that rare--at least not in Mexico, where many towns and streets have names which begin with X. And also a "Cs" sound minus "C" is a different pronunciation.

comment Are there consistent rules for pronouncing “c” and “g”?
1) Goat and Gun are not Spanish words, so they don't really apply. 2) You still didn't address ü.

comment How do you say “Turnover” in Spanish?
For words like this, you need to practice translating the concept, not the word.

X has three pronunciations, you missed the 's/z' sound as in "Xochitl".

comment Are there consistent rules for pronouncing “c” and “g”?
@MichaelWolf: See here about güey. But güey and agua aren't really comparable, since they're different g sounds, and I think guau doesn't really count, since it's not actually a Spanish word, but an Anglicanism, and an attempt to approximate an English word with a Spanish spelling.

comment Learning Spanish
Thank you for improving your question. However, it's still too broad to be a good fit for this site, as it is more of a discussion question than an objective question with a specific answer. There are many ways to learn a foreign language which don't involve vocab and grammar drills, which have varying degrees of usefulness depending on your context and learning goals.
