Carpeta

This is a discussion thread for the Daily Spanish Word for December 11, 2009

carpeta (feminine noun (la)) — folder, portfolio, file, loose-leaf binder, three-ring binder, doily. Look up carpeta in the dictionary

I saved the file in the My Documents folder. Isn't it there?
Guardé el archivo en la carpeta Mis Documentos. ¿No está allí?

Sadly I hear this more for carpet here in the US. People don't even realize what it REALLY means.

...y para variar, no están todos los que son, y probablemente no sean todos los que están.

En los mensajes 24 a 27 de este hilo, hablamos un poco de esto.


Por cierto si se trata de guardar documentos, en México, un fólder es flexible (de cartón o de plástico) y una carpeta es rígida, y normalmente con anillos y mayor capacidad.
