comment What is the symbol “&” called in Spanish?
No, he's asking for the name (which isn't the same as the meaning: in English the name is ampersand and the meaning is and); similarly the table from DPD (which I linked in the question when I edited it) is a table of meanings, not of names.

comment What is the symbol “&” called in Spanish?
@Icarus, the point of the question (as it stands now) is that although Wikipedia has an explanation it is unsourced and doesn't seem to be consistent with resources which are considered the authority on the subject. This answer doesn't really address that issue.

What's your reason for analysing cuchillo as coming from a stem cuchill- rather than a diminutive of ?cucho?

comment Spanish abbreviation for the United States of America
I've seen EUA in Catalan, so it's possible that some native Catalan speakers would carry it over into Castilian.

comment Translating “young man” and “young woman”
Although it's important to note that joven covers a much wider range than youth or young man (in the sense of the question).

comment Are there other “feminine only” adjectives in Spanish besides “embarazada”?
Only barely on topic, but the subject of adjectives which only really work as masculine or feminine brings to mind Ya no te amo, Raúl.

comment Why is Usted sometimes abbreviated as Vd. instead of Ud.? Is there any difference in usage between the two?
It's one of those things, like using español or castellano for the name of the language, in which you'll be wrong whichever you pick.
