comment Spanish for “sink”
In Cuba we use pila just for the spigot (no matter where it is placed), and fregadero just for the sink in the kitchen.

comment ¿Se usa “halar” en vez de “jalar” en algún lugar?
@deStrangis De hecho en Cuba de niños solían decirnos en la escuela que "jalar" era incorrecto. No se si continua siendo así. Me resulta muy gracioso ahora que alguien lo encuentre "horroroso".

comment How do you say “I got you!” in spanish
+1 for pointing that it could be different on each country. In Cuba (and other caribbean countries) we would say "te cogí", but the same phrase can be somewhat coarse/vulgar/offensive in other latin-american countries.

comment Usage of “mueco” vs. “mellado” for “toothless”
Is the first time I heard the word "mueco", and it is also the first time I see "mellado" used in this way. Where I come from we use "desdentado".

comment Is there a colloquial Spanish equivalent for “to get it” in the sense of grasping a concept?
In Cuba we use "caer" (to fall): "no caigo" or "el no ha caido". The phrase comes from "caer de la mata" (like a fruit that falls from a tree when is ripe).

comment What's the “ísimo” in the following words?
It's a maginification of the adjective, in an excited way, it's like saying "el pastel esta muy rico", but more enthusiastic.

comment Different words for “sign”
I kind of disagree with the image for rótulo. Rótulo, at least in my country, is a sign with some relief in its letters, usually hand-crafted. I think this one is a better match: images.travelpod.com/tripwow/photos/ta-00d1-bcdc-79c8/…. "Rotular" is the process of hand-crafting those letters.
