comment Was “rr” ever considered officially a letter of the Spanish alphabet?
When I was growing up and learning spanish in grade school, we always sang the alphabet with the the double letters.. 'ch','ll', and 'rr'. Sung to the tone of a miliary marching chant.

comment “Que viene” vs “próximo”
No idea why I mentioned months in that last comment. I meant to say year.

comment “Que viene” vs “próximo”
Why is it incorrect? The last time I checked, the upcoming month is always the next month. I never said that el año que viene could not be used; in fact, I sad they were interchangeable. Upcoming is a word used to describe something approaching, and every month is always approaching the other.

comment Creating new spanish words by adding dimunitives
That only describes what the suffixes do. It shows no connection between the [i] vowel and diminutives. I suppose I could post a question about it. It just seems to me that people use that closed front unrounded vowel to express diminution. For instance, the [í] in -ísimo not only adds excursiveness but conveys this what I'd call cuteness.

comment Creating new spanish words by adding dimunitives
I would like to say that there is a link between closed front unrounded vowels and diminutive communication, but I can't find the facts about it anywhere. es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocal_cerrada_anterior_no_redondeada

comment What is “él” for in “Estoy aquí porque me ha enviado él”?
Also, if you do not want to identify the person who invited you. You can say Estoy aquí porque se me ha enviado... meaning, I am here because I have been invited.

comment ¿Por qué cuando digo “Él no va a ningún lado” siento que está mal dicho?
No sería incorrecto sino que sería un doble negativo. I'm not going nowhere significaría que sí voy a ir por otra parte del espacio-tiempo.

comment What musical instrument is “bateria”?
A set of things would be called an equipo. Un equipo de baterías de cocina would be a set of kitchen cookware, meaning they are all the same brand and complement each other, otherwise, baterías de cocina refers only to a collection of pots and pans, both of which could be used as drums, :D
