comment Is the Spanish in Don Quixote too archaic to be useful for those learning Spanish?
@Flimzy: I have tried to make the question more objective by asking for "particular" constructions used in the book that might be archaic, and wonder if the question can be reopened in its current form.

Asked for particular archaic constructions.

comment Is the resemblance between the words “churir” and “churros” more than coincidence?
@rupps: The previous question was "linked to" in the fourth word of my own question.

comment How do I say these phrases in Spanish?
"Conseguí" is not the word I'd use in this context. May "obtenir" or "recibir." (I'm not a native speaker, however.) If you edited your question to ask about this, or similar word choice, you might be able to get it re-opened.

comment Why does “Se habla español” translate to “We speak Spanish”?
se is the "reflexive." Me hablo, I talk to MYself. Se habla one talks to ONEself. Hablarse is the infinitive, and se habla is the conjugated form of the expression.

comment How do you say “coming” in Spanish?
Why the downvote (which I cancelled). These seems like an acceptable (if less common) translation to me.

comment What does “churir” mean?
If "churros" is the word for a certain pastry, does it refer to a "wrinkled" pastry? Or are the two words, churro and churir unrelated?

comment How do I say 'It feels like' in Spanish?
You're supposed to post an attempt at (Spanish) translation in your question, which would then differentiate it from the German version (which should have its own attempt). My own "try" at this one is "Me siento," which I posted as a comment rather than answer, because it may be wrong. We're here to correct "self learners," not translate from scratch.

This would be a better question if you offered your own translation "try." If you said, "I think the expression is 'yo parezco' " (wrong), the question would be ok. At SE, we are here to correct your efforts, but not to teach from scratch.
