Expectativa - Expectación

Como también hablo mucho con hablantes no nativos del español, a veces sus errores se me contagian. He oído mucho últimamente la palabra expectación. Yo siempre pensaba que lo correcto era expectativa. Y ahora me dicen que existen las dos palabras y que su significado es distinto. Es cierto? Tú como hablante nativo usas expectación? Gracias.

Not, David, the use of that word is not very meet, simply almost ain't used in my contry or at least in my life, the form more common of use the word is Expectativa.

Regards.

the couple of words doesn't meaning the same, it has distintic meaning in their use.

I'm sorry but I don't use this word in my vocabulary Expectación, we use another type of words in our Spanish.
