comment Translating “I'm bad with [remembering] something”
@hippietrail: Hmm, now there's a question for EL&U :) I'd say "I'm bad with names" not "I'm bad at names" (Western US). I would say "I'm bad at swimming" though.

comment What does “lo” in “(no) lo es” refer to?
I know I've read something about adding the direct object pronoun to emphasize or clarify what's being talked about, but I don't remember where...

comment Translating “looking forward to”
As razpeitia mentions in his answer, does "espero ..." convey that you are excited about something coming up in the future, or just that you hope/wish/desire it will happen?

comment What is the difference between different ways of expressing desire and intention?
whim is a noun, not a verb, so you can't say "I whim" in English.

Do modus and tempus refer to mode and tense?

comment Approximant vs. fricative realization of /b/, /d/, /g/
@PeterOlson: Whoops you're right, I had it backwards. They're plosives in the cases I mentioned, fricatives/approximants everywhere else.

@hippietrail: Ah ok, now I understand.

comment Approximant vs. fricative realization of /b/, /d/, /g/
@hippietrail: I'd be curious to see that. For the fricatives to be phonemes, you'd need a minimal pair between the fricative and the plosive, and I've never heard of that existing in Spanish, even regionally.

comment Single or multiple word names of numbers
I don't think it's that simple. A Google search for "diez y seis" shows over a million results.
