comment Why is “Enrique” pronunced as though it has a double “r”?
By surrounded you mean by two vowels or at least by one vowel? because for example: in carne and honra the r is surrounded by exactly one vowel and one consonant, and in the first case it's a soft r and in the second case it's hard.

I can't think of a spanish word with mr either, but when pronouncing brands, made-up names, acronyms, etc., you always roll the r after an m.

@DiegoMijelshon: it's still not part of the spanish language, it's a foreign pronunciation, but Israel is correctly pronounced with a rolled R in Spanish.

comment “Está hecho de…” why not “es hecho de”?
hecho is not an adjective, it's a verb. If it was an adjective, it could use es depending on the case, e.g. La puerta es verde, La puerta está rota.

comment Translation of “to play favorites”
I think that when citing a regionalism or slang, the origin should be cited too, because slang is of course not consistent throughout all of the spanish speaking world.

@Laura: that may be a regionalism, where have you heard it? Doesn't mean this in Argentina.

comment What is the difference between 'hallar' and 'encontrar'?
No misspelling but you could use some line breaks. Just enter two spaces before hitting enter.

comment Is “me gustas” ever right?
gustar is not unusual at all. It's almost equivalent to the verb like. And me gustas is correct and very common, I've actually told me gustas to many girls ;-)

comment When is “mitad” appropriate?
@Flimzy: That's what I meant, please give examples of how you use mitad and medio. I meant both just for enumerating the words, not that you used them together.

@KevinK.: the fix is less than 6 characters, only you can fix it, neither MikMik nor I have enough reputation to do so.

comment When is “mitad” appropriate?
@JaimeSoto: why wrong? media is half as an adjective, and mitad is half as a noun, so media mitad is effectively half of a half, I.E. a quarter.
