comment Regional use of “genial”
RAE's 4th definition for genial is "magnífico, estupendo," without any regional or dialectal notes. Sounds like widespread usage, just like Rafael said!
comment How is the letter 's' (or the 's' sound) pronounced in Spain?
When I did a homestay in Cáceres as a Spanish student, I picked up "hissy" S that native Latin American Spanish speakers always comment on as sounding like I'm from Spain. (I definitely use seseo exclusively, so it's not ceceo that's making them think that.) Do you know, phonetically speaking, what's distinctive about the S of Spain, or perhaps just that region of Spain?
