comment Extensión y origen del orto
Hasta donde yo sabía (puramente anecdótico), la relación con la palabra huerto era relacionado a la cosecha: al agacharse los trabajadores mostraban sus partes.

comment Añadiendo “re” antes los verbos
Importante en esta respuesta es que el significado no es siempre el mismo.

comment Alternative to the user-unfriendly Dictionary of RAE?
Furthermore, you need to be precise with accents to get the word you're looking for.

comment “Se te debería ir” vs. “Debería írsete”
@belisarius Lo es, y posiblemente de parodiar el estilo me haya surgído esa costumbre. Nunca habría pensado que hoy estaría aprendiendo sobre el mismo idioma que hablo sólo por eso. Pero aquí estamos. :) Chewie, muchas gracias, muy buena respuesta, agradezco más aún agregar la fuente del DPD.

comment “okupar” and “ocupar”
A similar thing happens in English were people choose to write "magick", deliberately misspelled from "magic" to differentiate the concepts (although in this case, the origin of the misspelling can be traced back to an author).

comment Why isn't “good morning” “buenas mañanas”?
As a funny side note, it is quite common to say just "Buenas..." (not specifying what) in some places, or at least in Argentina. It gets terribly practical when it's close to noon and you're not sure on what to say.

comment Argentine slang 're'
As a sidenote, sometimes in Argentina, requete- is used as a more emphatic version of re-. In the popular reasoning, it makes sense that it is bigger since it includes the word. :P

¡Muchas gracias! Sergio, ¿sabes si se usa en alguna zona en particular de México o es una expresión común en todo el país?

comment Where does the expression “Oe oe oe oe oe, … oeee, … oeee” come from?
Still, I'm pretty sure that "oe oe oe" is also used in football/soccer chants (although I do not know if it's a derivation of "Olé"). Specially when it is used for completing part of the son as to comply to a specific metric. While "Olé" is sometimes given, unofficially, a cheering significance, "oe" would be purely phonetic filling. Unfortunately, I do not have sources to backup my claim.

comment What is the most universal way to say “keep the change”?
Sorry if I expressed myself wrongly. I do think that the answer is ok, and that the chosen options are really the most common ones. I think it would be a good idea to add that information so if someone in the future looks at it will have a reference on what to say in specific situations / regions.
