comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
Your answer now contradicts itself... first saying "Is just an old grammar rule", then saying "there is no rule, or grammar rule." :) Anyway, I think you hit the nail on the head with point that both the U.S. and Mexico use the $ sign for their (quite different) currencies. So the 'pesos' (or perhaps 'dollars' after the $ symbol is for clarification. It is redundant, but is used to reduce ambiguity.

I would still be interested in that link if you think of it again and can find it.

comment Pronouncing years in Spanish
@JoulSauron: The longer forms are correct, too. For example "Nineteen hundred and ninety-eight." We do the same thing with addresses. The address "1998 Somestreet" could be "Nineteen ninety-eight somestreet," "Nineteen hundred ninety-eight Somestreet" or "One thousand nine hundred and ninety-eight Somestreet." The last form is rarely, if ever, used with years in modern writing or speech, though.

comment Pronouncing years in Spanish
@JoulSauron: "Nineteen ninety-eight" and "Two thousand four" are verbal abbreviations in English. The question is asking if this is possible in Spanish.

comment I need a Spanish word list for statistical analysis (as complete as possible)
I'm sure this question would be closed on linguistics, as well. I'd suggest searching for spell check dictionaries in your target language(s). aspell/ispell come with some that are freely available. Google is your friend.

What I think would make for much more interesting and constructive questions would be, once you have the Spanish translation of the sentence (even from google translate), if you need help deconstructing the grammatical syntax, etc, then please, by all means, ask those questions here.

I have read the article, too, and it's an interesting read. However, I think it shows that this really isn't a useful way to ask the question. Those sentences are intended as diagnostic sentences--and for those purposes, this is just a translation question. It's also likely that google translate would be sufficient for the purposes the article talks about.

For now I am going to close this question, although this needn't be a permanent fate for this question. I invite you to discuss this on Meta, if you feel it needs additional attention, or simply get 5 re-open votes, which will indicate the community believes it's a good questions as it's written.

comment ¿Me pueden ayudar a deconstruir las siguientes oraciones? Can you help me deconstruct these sentences?
I think we all know better than to trust Google for simple translation work. That doesn't really make this on-topic. It seems almost as if you're asking "teach me Spanish." None of the 10 passages are particularly difficult to translate. I'm having a difficult time understanding why this is an on-topic or constructive question. I see it as either simple translation (which you deny, although I don't see any evidence how it's different), or far too broad, as asking someone to teach you Spanish.

This appears to be a simple translation request. Or well, ten of them. Simple translation is off-topic. If there are passages you are struggling to translate due to some nuance in the language, then it is appropriate to ask here--but you should ask one question for each passage, not a single question for ten. Please edit your question, or explain why it is helpful to keep all 10 translations as a single question, or this question will probably be closed.

comment Why is “Enrique” pronunced as though it has a double “r”?
@dainichi: I pronounce "latter" and "ladder" quite differently. Same with "Ettie" (my grandmother's name) and "Eddy" (my father's name). "Edy" vs. "Eddy" however, differs only in the pronunciation of the vowel sounds (long E vs. short E). This is based only on my experience.

comment ¿Cuál es el análisis gramatical de “Hay pan”?
As it's worded, it does indeed look like a question taken from a test, or a discussion piece or "puzzle" question--all of which would be off topic. If you have three answers, what additional information are you looking for? If you are trying to resolve problems in the three answers, please post those answers for others to critique.
