comment Words and phrases with non-evident prejudice
Tenemos ejemplos en ingles, tambien -- "gypped" refiere a un a persona que ha sufrido una trampa, y refiere a los gitanos y la percepcion (veradera o falsa) que tuvieron los europeos del oeste. Tambien hay la frase, "Irish twins," que refiere a dos ninos que fueron nacido dentro de un ano. Entonces, sus edades seran la misma por un tiempo. Este es un metodo grosero de referir a la percepcion que tuvieron las inglesas a los irlandeses y su "inhabilidad" de mostar comedido con respecto a las relaciones sexuales.

comment ¿Cómo se pueden identificar palabras árabes en español?
So my grammar is (often) terrible. Please, please edit if there are subject/verb/gender agreement issues. :D

comment What is the correct order of object pronouns?
Yes -- there, that's an indirect object pronoun, since the verb (to be important) is happening to you. By contrast, reflexive pronouns are things one does to oneself -- you bathe yourself (ducharse), you dress yourself (vestirese), etc.

comment Is there an equivalent, in Spanish, for the interrobang?
And yes, I know this is in English. I've avoided asking questions on here in English so far, but this one was too hard to machine-translate!

comment ¿Existen las palabras «nosotras» y «vosotras»?
Eek. I am clearly just so bad at this whole spelling thing. I know why I messed it up; the usual conjugation requires an accent (andar => andáis) but ir does not.

comment What are the main differences between Spanish in Spain and Spanish in Latin America?
Also, certain words such as coger should NOT be used in Latin America. (Well, at least in Mexico.) They have different connotations in different locations. Similarly, taco in Spain is palabrota in Latin America.
