comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
@Flimzy : Fair point. But, apart from being very rare, I'd say that it's actually the common sound 'cs', of which the 'c' is ommited because it's almost impossible to pronounce. Similar to the 'ps' prefix in 'psicología'

Same in Argentina. BTW, the question asks about "a menudo" vs "frecuentemente".

comment Mixing tenses in subjunctive?
+1 The negation of "Creo que Juan murió" are either (not equivalently) "No creo que Juan haya muerto" or "Creo que Juan no murió". But "No creo que Juan murió" would be wrong. See for example: forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=222263

comment ¿Cuál es el verbo para “party” en español?
@ArthurChamz He/she would still ask: "¿Qué se festeja?" ("What is the celebration about?"). I'd call that a misunderstanding.

> Would anyone misunderstand if you said "Quiero festejar"? Here (Argentina) it would sound wrong; nobody would use that in that sense; and everybody would spontaneously ask: "¿Festejar qué?". The young people just say "salir".

comment ¿Cuál es el verbo para “party” en español?
I don't agree. The first meanings of "festejar" are "Celebrar algo con fiestas" and "Hacer festejos en obsequio de alguien"; in both cases, the emphasis is on the "something" that's celebrated, or in the someone that receives the celebration; at least in Argentina (and, I suspect, in many other places) the word is used in those senses. To mean "I want to party tonight" we'd never say "Quiero festejar" but "Quiero ir/salir de fiesta".
