comment ¿Cómo se dice, “a caso” o “acaso”?
@jrdioko: no; the adverb expressing doubt always should be a single word (I've updated my answer to suppress any possible ambiguity). There's, however, an adverbial locution a caso hecho which means intencionadamente, but clearly this locution has a complete different meaning from the adverb acaso.

comment Any rhyme or reason to the names of playing cards?
It's the first time I read Quena for the Queen; are you sure about that name? Anyway, I've always heard (and used) Jota, Cu and Ka (the name of the corresponding letter) to refer to the Jack, Queen, and King, respectively.
