You have a point. I imagine though that native Spanish speakers, that read those characters, look at those characters as de facto characteristics of a formal, well-written document.

comment Is it OK to end a sentence with an object pronoun (e.g. “He aprendido mucho de los”)
I disagree. Ellos is the best possible option given the other pronouns (aquellos, esos, estos). It would be better to say Me han enseñado muchos esos libros though. but that isn't a direct translation, and would be out of context a bit.

comment Ask/command someone to “take this”
I simply say 'Toma' when I'm in a bind like that. Typically though, you say 'Toma' right as you are handing something to someone. I suppose it's the English equivalent of "Here!"

The third one should be passive since you have no definite subject that it going to do it... Es importante que se lo haga ... it is important this it is done.

comment Por y Para for Recipients
Oh no! Don't do that; it might hurt my feelings. Could you provide some "correct" examples and I'll edit my post accordingly, giving you some credit?

comment Por y Para for Recipients
They are bizarre examples, I know. But it's always the strangest examples that stick in a person's mind. The difference between por and para is very difficult to explain, so why not be bizarre about it...

Agua doesn't require a dieresis, since the u precedes a strong vowel and creates a diphthong. Ah-gwa, with a stress on the beginning A because it is the penultimate vowel.
