comment Why is 'estoy' used when saying “I'm related to”
Yes, it's always estar. Not sure about the philosophical explanation :-) However, you use ser to state all specific relationships, biological or not (ella es mi suegra)

comment Translating “young man” and “young woman”
@Joze yes, that's true. In a formal context you might even call a 10 year old señor.

Nice and thorough. However, there's something I don't agree with: men also dislike being called "señor" when they're below 40.

@LauraMoyàAlcover I changed your S example because Israel, being a Hebrew word, is usually pronounced with a soft R by jews (native Spanish speakers, that is)

@Alenanno I did not intend to be harsh, but firm (sorry if it came out wrong). It is disrespectful because: (1) Passover has nothing to do with Easter (2) It has been celebrated for several more centuries (3) Easter was, for centuries and until very recently, a good excuse to beat up or murder jews, so it's not something we want associated with our holiday.

@Alenanno why do you assume most people know what Christmas is and not what Passover is? (Actually, we don't even have to deal with "most" people, only the educated ones that are likely to use this site) Besides, calling it "Jewish easter" is disrespectful.

@vartec you're right; mozo is used there instead (which means waiter in Latin America)
