comment Best ways to say “on short notice”?
All sound ok to me (Argentina). Instead of "antelación" we also use "anticipación".

comment Why is “El agua poco profunda” feminin?
@syrux : the article 'el' is also used for feminine nouns, if they start with a stressed 'a'. Other examples: 'el alma' , 'el hacha', 'el arma'. All these are feminine, despite the masculine article.

comment “Fine line between” in Spanish?
"... would be wrong. You'd be saying that the difference is negligible." But that's what the "there's a fine line" idiom means! idioms.thefreedictionary.com/there+is+a+fine+line+between

comment “Fine line between” in Spanish?
I don't quite agree. "Hay una sutil differencia" emphasizes the difference, "there's a fine line" emphasizes the proximity.

comment What's the position of my tongue when I speak Spanish 'd'?
I don't really agree. The difference between the two first 'd' sounds you mention so subtle that most spanish speakers (myself included) are not aware of its existence. In any case, the first case is not as explosive as the Enlish 'd', and the second case never as smooth. And -above all- it's never pronounced sticking the tongue between/outside the teeth as in the "the".

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'
