comment “You look good” versus “You smell good”
As an addition, I would say that "(tú) hueles bien" to mean "your sense of smell is good" is rather odd. In fact, I would say it could mean something more like "you are good at smelling" which is also rather strange. To say "your sense of smell is good" I would say "tienes buen olfato".

comment When is “al” not interchangeable with “a el”?
Here's what DPD says. Summarizing, it's what you said: if "El" is part of the name, and therefore capitalized, it is not contracted.

comment What's the origin of words ended in letter “j”?
I agree. Reloj, boj and carcaj are the only ones I've ever heard from that list.

comment Shorter/alternate version of refrigerator
Personally, I use "frigo" quite often, but it's very informal. "Frigorífico" it's as difficult to say (or even more) as "refrigerador", so it's not very helpful for the OP, I guess. "Nevera" is far easier, an used a lot in Spain, but I have no idea if it's used at all in Mexico or the US.

comment Is “tobogán” an acceptable word for “slide” throughout the Spanish speaking world?
I've never heard anything apart from tobogán in Spain either. Well, except the Basque txirrista in the Basque Country.

comment What is English translation of this short audio file in Spanish ?
The clip says "Estoy muy encantada conocerte. Un beso grande.", which has a grammatical mistake. It should be "[...] encantada de conocerte".

comment Difference between “mas” and “más”
I don't think their pronunciation is the same. Mas is "átona" and más is "tónica", so they're not pronounced exactly the same. But I don't know how to explain the difference, really.
