comment ¿Qué significa “salir del paso?”
Even though I don't completely agree with the recommended English translation to the phrase, I think these definitions would be the most accurate.

comment ¿Me pueden ayudar a deconstruir las siguientes oraciones? Can you help me deconstruct these sentences?
@JosiahSprague: I just finished reading the article. Maybe if you rephrase the question in such a way as to ask for why things are like that in Spanish. For example in the first sentence: "Es la manzana de John"/"Es de John la manzana"/"Es de John"/"De John es la manzana". They are all valid translations and you can see that the order of subject, verb, and object could vary and still be valid. This can make the approach the author of the article follows a little challenging. Hope this helps to get your question reopened.

comment Difference between “hay”, “ay” and “ahí”
@Flimzy: As a Mexican I can say that I have the theory that people do not write this correctly because of one of three reasons: lack of education, laziness or, they just do not care about writing it properly. IMHO.
