Crotalito, you don't say you're snore. Do you mean you're sore?

Yes, you would say something like: "I snore so loudly that the house shakes." Or, "I snore so badly that I'm surprised my wife doesn't think there's an earthquake."

oh you mean that. I was confused about what Crotalito was trying to say. "I'm snore" didn't make sense.
oh, so roncar is "snore". interesting

Actually, I believe that "roncar" is "to snore": http://www.tomisimo.org/diccionario/...espanol/roncar

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?)

@Hernán: you're evil!


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".
