comment What are the accentuation rules in Spanish?
@Laura Estaba pensando en eso antes, porque pensaba a "palabra" que también es llana y no lleva acento. :) ¡Voy a agregarlo!

Esdrújulas = third syllable. Sobreesdrújulas = fourth syllable.

@Joze Also other languages start with "sp", Spanish is the only one that, apparently for now at least, that doesn't have any word starting with "sp".

comment Why is “Enrique” pronunced as though it has a double “r”?
You mentioned "rat", do you mean the english letter? Speaking about "R", maybe English is not the best example... :D

+1 Nice question. Simple but useful... In my Spanish studies I never noticed this rule. :)

Do you mind adding a quick explanation here too? This is useful in case the original page is modified or even deleted, otherwise your answer becomes useless... :) +1 by the way, since you answer the question.

@Brian That emoticon is used everywhere actually; by the way, for those who don't know, it's basically this face.

comment Idiomatic translation of “Dame tu luz”?
The translation is that one, and the meaning is the same. The translation I provided is not meant as "give me your lamp", but rather something more like "give me your love" (just an example). When you say something romantic "you are shining to me", you're not actually saying the other person is glowing, but it's a way of saying that the other person for you is glowing, since you love that person. It's not just intended in a romantic sense, as in the song "Give me your light". I'm not sure I was very clear on this one, but I hope it helps.

comment Greetings for presents and cards
@DiegoMijelshon There's no need to be harsh. But can you explain why is that disrespectful? I didn't mean to disrespect anything or anyone, of course, and I apologize if I unintentionally did, but maybe you're taking this too much personally.

Why do you mention a "last sentence"? :)

@DiegoMijelshon Why did you delete that? Not everyone knows what Passover is... I added that so people won't have to look for it. :)
