The word game Chileno introduced is between the adjective "ronco" and the verb "roncar", present tense "yo ronco".

So a possible situation could be "estoy ronco porque ronco mucho" = "I have a sore throat because I snore a lot".

...but the verb "roncar" really has nothing to do with being "ronco".



Besides, roncar in chile (at least) also means more or less that you are the "commanding" voice.

I'm assuming, though, that Chileno was referring to snoring. Maybe he wasn't. He's being strangely silent these past few hours. (Ping! Hernan? Where are you?)
I was in California for the last dos days :->

Exactly I tried to say I snore. But I placed the word I'm as mistake of my sentence.

Thank you for you advice.

Lee Ying - "snore" is a verb in English. If you want to use the construction "I am..." you would have to say something like "I am snoring..." But that would only be if you were snoring right at this very moment. (Which would mean that you're not typing on Tomisimo at this very moment...)

*I snore. (Something that I do regularly.)
*I am snoring. (Right this very moment, I am asleep and snoring.)
*I am hoarse because I have a sore throat.
