comment Melómano y cinéfilo ¿Por qué se forman con sufijos diferentes?
Melómano is definietly not specifically related to opera, but to music. That's a false cognate with Italian. The meaning in Spanish coincides with the use is given to melòmane in French, to (Меломан)[lingvo-online.ru/ru/Translate/en-ru/… ] in Russian, with melomaniac in English. There is no reference to opera in that languages. There is no reference to opera in Spanish either. Altough etymologically it could be rather related to singing, that meaning is no longer understood.

comment How do you say “muscle fever” in Spanish?
@pHonta What in that entry RAE says is sheer nonsense. Entumido, as in the answer, is correct (not exactly scientifically right, but correct). To see that, go to stright to the verb entumir: "Dicho de un miembro o de un músculo: Entorpecerse por haber estado encogido o sin movimiento, o por compresión de algún nervio."

comment How do you say “muscle fever” in Spanish?
But how do Spaniards say? "Tengo agujetas", "Me siento con agujetas", "Estoy agujetas"? or do I need another verb?

comment ¿Es una ofensa decir “Chale”?
¿"¡chale mano!"? Tiene tanto tiempo que no escucho eso. Creo que el español defeño no es tan decente. "Chale mano" me suena moderado. Más común es "no maaaa", "no chingues", el más moderno "buey" (o "güey"). Pero veo tu argumento de comparación con "gosh" (+1).

comment What sort of Spanish are they speaking in this video?
@verve no, it doesn't. For instance, vale is mostly used in Spain, as are lots of other terms.
