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

comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
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.

comment Translating a legit double negative
@angus: I disagree; I think the other answers apply quite reasonably here. I think your answer is also good, and expands upon the previous answers, but would also apply equally well to the other question.

@B.ClayShannon: The one you mentioned in your comment... "agua = ah-wah". I've never heard that before.

comment Learning Spanish
Welcome to our site! It's really hard to identify an actual question here. There's also a lot of background information that isn't really relevant (that you learned French in school, for instance). Can you try to focus your question?

@B.ClayShannon: Where is that pronunciation used? I'm not familiar with it in Mexico.

comment What is the implied noun in “empanada”?
@Tony: I'm not sure why "sweeties" came to mind first... "sweets" would be the more common word, and I have updated the answer accordingly.

comment El autor del cuento del 'vagabundo'
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about locating a piece of literature, rather than about the Spanish language.

I don't think you would ever see 'ser' with 'bien.' But there might be an exception.

There are indeed many verbs which are commonly reflexive, but there's no magical "reflexive" property inherent in any verb. Even the commonly reflexive verbs can be done to other people "Yo bañé al bebé."

It is impossible to use a reflexive pronoun with a non-reflexive verb, as the simple act of using a reflexive pronoun makes the verb reflexive. Although in this case, it's not actually reflexive.

comment What is the implied noun in “empanada”?
My point is that "Hand me that enchilied/fried/breaded" does make perfect sense in Spanish. We do the exact same thing in English by pluralizing an adjective. Examples: Fries, sugaries, sweeties, icies, smooties. There is no implied noun. "Sugaries" can be anything that is sugary... "Sugery ones."
