comment Identifying masculine and feminine words
"those exceptions often happen in very common words" I'd object that, for the case of the "o=>masculine" rule. The exceptions (like "mano") are actually very rare. ("foto" "moto" are really shortenings of "fotografía" and "motocicleta")

comment When are 'me', 'te', 'os' and 'vos' used?
BTW: in Spanish we tend to omit pronouns when they are self-evident; your first sentence would be more natural thus: "Necesito un poco de ayuda".

comment Meaning of “andar de vago(a)”
"To wander aimlessly, perhaps?" Probably (the expression is not used in my surroundings), related to "vagar". wordreference.com/definicion/vagar

comment Etimología de la frase popular “Hoy Canta Gardel”
El origen parece ser inseguro. Me suena más convincente la de que en los días de pago los asalariados se daban el lujo de ir a los bares y poner a Gardel en las máquinas tocadiscos. De paso, en Argentina la frase es totalmente desconocida.

comment Linguistic Use of Spanish Characters Keyboard Layout
