comment “Desde luego” meaning and etymology
Welcome to the site! Do you happen to have a source explaining the semantic shift you described?

comment Computer science, software engineer/developer, and programmer
@Flimzy: IMO, all the discussion shows it's more complex than a simple dictionary translation. Granted, it's not really "expert-level," but I think it's something I'd have trouble understanding completely just using a dictionary.

comment I forgot how to say “I forgot”
Are you sure the se is passive, not reflexive? I found a couple references that say otherwise.

comment What is the most common way to end a phone call?
@Joze: Yeah, I thought about that, but I intentionally try to make these as specific as possible ("What is the most common way..." as opposed to "What are all the possible ways...").

comment Translating “young man” and “young woman”
@hippietrail: Yeah it seems like every question on a Q&A site is a request (so no need to duplicate that), and for a "word" or "single-word" tag, see the meta question.

comment Backchannels (listener responses) in Spanish
Wouldn't the last example be translated a lot more strongly than "Get out of here"?

comment What is the correct order of object pronouns?
@jasonmcclurg: That example has only one object pronoun. Ella is the subject pronoun, me is an indirect object pronoun, and dijo is the verb.

Jaime Soto's answer above seems to indicate this isn't true in all cases.

comment Present subjunctive in vos form
@JaimeSoto: Ah that's helpful. It's a general rule for the subjunctive vos form that I'm looking for. For example, how do you know it's mintás instead of mentás or mientás? It seems like these cases are not quite regular, but not quite fully irregular :)

comment Present subjunctive in vos form
Great find! My biggest confusion though is about irregular verbs, and those don't seem to be addressed in that list.
