comment Creating new spanish words by adding dimunitives
I asked my mother-in-law to explain how she makes arroz al horno, and she went: "Cortas unas patatitas en rodajitas finas y las fríes un poquito en aceite. Luego pones a cocer la carne hecha trocitos y, mientras tanto, haces un sofritito con un tomate cortadito..." etc. etc. Some people obviously find it cute to speak using lots of diminutives.

comment Can someone give me an easy (or at least grokkable) rule of thumb for how to tell the difference between “this” and “that” and “these” and “those”?
Are the forms with "tilde" (éste, ése etc.) still mandatory? I heard that one can now use the forms without "tilde" as pronouns.

And "¿Tu madre por qué es vendedora?" also sounds fine in certain contexts.

comment What is a good translation for the “overview” other than “síntesis”?
I would add "visión general (sobre algo)".
