comment Basque words in Spanish vocabulary
Great list! I wish the RAE online dictionary had the option to look up words by etymology, or regionalisms. I also didn't include in my response some words which RAE includes in the dictionary but which are related to the Basque culture, like aizcolari, pelotari, batúa...

comment How formal is cuán? What are the informal alternatives?
No, I don't have any sources. I have always heard it as cuán, but it may well be incorrect. I'll edit my answer.

comment Spanish words for cap, cover, lid, etc
Yes, but the dictionary doesn't always include all uses of a word. By the way, when I wrote screwed on, I meant "enroscado", but I'm not sure it's the best choice. These are called "tapones" in Spain, and are certainly not inserted on the bottle.
