This is straight from another source.

comment What is dative ético?
How does it differ from standard dative? In #1, who does each se refer to? The subject? If so, why use it? Just for the emotional emphasis? In #2, who is studying? Someone the speaker's talking to (a student perhaps)? Again, how does that differ from regular dative?

comment Uses of “se”: “se rompió” o “rompió”
I don't think the grammar in this answer is correct. At the end of this answer it says "mi hermano" is the subject for "A mi hermano se le rompieron la mayoría de los vasos." I believe "la mayoría de los vasos" are the subject, romperse is the verb, and "A mi hermano" is the indirect object (with "le" being the indirect object pronoun). I'm not a native speaker, but @BrianA's answer seems more correct.

comment Gramatica: te veo los ojos
Is "te" the indirect object here (the recipient of the action)? If so, wouldn't the his/her version be "le veo los ojos"? If this is true, it feels like "I see the eyes and you're the one who's receiving my look".

comment How to pronounce the consonants “y” and “ll”?
The Wikipedia article seems to indicate that "lleísmo" is when ll /ʎ/ and y /ʝ/ are distinct. Am I confused when reading that?
