comment Difference between “alentar” and “animar”
In my opinion, this question is a subpart of the the precedent one. An argument of the type "the answers were not satisfactory" is invalid. You could either offer a bounty for the other one or be more specific on what you are looking for. Otherwise I will vote to close.

comment Is “versus” a Spanish word?
@hippietrail some of those questions belong to Linguistics. Personally, I think a simple rule of thumb should be as long as the word is commonly used within language, it is part of it. I think RAE is too purist excluding the word "versus" from search.

comment Why “fiestas de árboles” and not “árboles de fiestas”?
"Árboles de fiestas" is a phrase made up by me. I don't know exactly if it makes sense. I added the context where I found "Fiestas de árboles"

comment Why does the preterite of “traducir” transform into “tradujo”?
as a native Romanian, that would explain some things, in particular why the conjugation of "to be" is so close to "ser"

comment Why does the preterite of “traducir” transform into “tradujo”?
Yes, it is incorrect. You can say "inflection", which in the case of verbs becomes "conjugation".

comment Why is the “X” in México and Texas pronunced as the letter “J”?
I read that it is pronounced "ks" before consonants (e.g. extra), in careful speech, though more often as "s".
