comment Difference between “oreja” and “oído”
@Javi: Yes, and it's also the participle of oír, and something about firearms and explosives. But regarding the difference between oído and oreja, I think the anatomical meanings are just enough. By the way, oreja also means "sentido de la audición", so in that meaning they're just the same.

comment Translation of “to wind (a rope, hose, string, cord, etc.)”
Bobinar is another one, which means basically "devanar". And arrollar, too.

comment What does “haiga” mean?
I don't know if this story about the origin of "haiga" as "big car" is true, but it is funny.

comment Pregunta sobre pronombre: preguntárnoslas
@Cadenza: I meant that "presentárnoslas", to me, sounds like "introduce them to us" not "introduce us to them", which is what the question asked. However, since you introduce people "both ways", it doesn't matter so much. But let's change the verb and use "entregar". Entregárnoslas is "give them to us", but "give us to them"?

comment to drink: beber vs. tomar
I know it's transitive. I didn't mean to imply otherwise. I just wanted to add a typical usage.

comment Pregunta sobre pronombre: preguntárnoslas
@Javi: yes, but the OP says "us" is the direct object and "her friends" the indirect object. I'll write it in English, to make things clear: "Gabriela does not want to introduce us to her friends". "Presentárnoslas" doesn't match exactly that sentence (by meaning yes, because the introduction is mutual), I think. But maybe it does, according to the link you provide.

comment to drink: beber vs. tomar
When inviting someone, or asking what they want, tomar is very used, as in "¿qué tomas?" or "¿qué van a tomar?"

In the first paragraph, you mean "tomar can only be used as transitive", don't you?

comment Pregunta sobre pronombre: preguntárnoslas
To me, "presentárnoslas" sounds like "introduce them to us", not "introduce us to them", which is what the OP meant. But *presentarlasnos is definitely incorrect.

comment When should I attach the indirect and direct object pronoun to the end of a verb?
"[...] da un examen a nosotros" is not correct. It should be "[...] nos da un examen (a nosotros)".

comment Querer vs Amar & Adorar
I also think that amar is not very used. You can hear it in films and such, but not in everyday use. Regarding adorar, I think it is used without an ironical tone, but it is not used much, either. In fact, I would say it's more usually used in the "gustar de algo extremadamente" meaning, rather than the "amar con extremo", or even, taking the second meaning of adorable (encantador), as encontrar adorable.

comment Translation of “settling in”
For the second one, I'd definitely use instalarse, but for the first, returning home, I'm not so sure. Though right now I can't think of a better alternative.
