We've had this conversation here previously on Tomísimo, but I'm not sure right now of the thread.... But I learned in Uruguay that bombilla means the straw-like apparatus from which one drinks one's mate. See these images:

Right. And it should be included in this entry as such. In Chile we also call bombilla a somewhat like a straw, but its made of metal and it has one of its ends like a bubble with holes in it, and acts as a colander.

And we call pajita a drinking straw : http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...N%26start%3D36

También se usa "ampolleta" como una pequeña botella de vidrio o plástico que contiene líquido para ser inyectado.


...y recordaré que "drinking straw" aquí se llama "popote".

Para nosotros, "ámpula" y "ampolla" son lo mismo cuando se trata de la piel.

Cuando dices que "también" se usa ampolleta para denominar una pequeña botella para líquidos inyectables", quieres decir que también les llaman ampollas o ámpulas?

Se me había olvidado la palabra popote...

I would say "acts as a filter". For me the purpose of a colander is to keep the solid and lose the liquid, whereas this does the opposite.

@Chileno: "también", porque ya fue mencionado ese significado por otros usuarios.

I know. I looked at that "colander" and I did not like it, but that's the way it came out at that moment...
