I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

comment Why is “Usted” grammatically a third person?
It's also in Italian "His Majesty" -> "Sua Maestà". Or the "Sie" in italian is "lei" (third person, the feminine is used for everyone).

@Javi the "no hay de que" is directly quoted from the title, so I "can't" change it, but thank you for saying that. :)

comment When to use 'o' and 'ó'
+1 I didn't know about the distinction "number 0" VS "letter o"... So if now we don't distinguish them anymore, how do you know if it's a O or a zero? Apart from the shape and the diagonal line inside the number 0...
