I have a questions David, I did a fast search at the dictionary from Tomisimo. And I found the word tummy and the website showed me the following meanings of the word, Tummy- Panza, Barriga. It's accurate translation or you have other meaning for it.

I have learned very much with this discussion. I see that I need to visit the dictionary more often. :-)

Hernán - I just checked the www.wordreference.com that you mentioned in the other thread. It looks good - and I'll try using it sometimes. The interesting thing is that I tend to prefer Tomísimo's dictionary because you can type a word in either Spanish or English and the dictionary can figure out your source and target languages (most of the time). One less click is always good for a task that you repeat many times while on the computer!

Added later: I like wordreference.com's pronunciation guide. Enough to make me want to go back there regularly. David - start adding your .wav files (keep the cough drops on hand - you're going to have a lot of words to read for us!!)

As a translator tool goes, you can't always find enough tools to use. As with anything idiomatic, discussions ensue and there we go...

And I'm finding that there are an awful lot of things in Spanish that seem idiomatic to me.

eerr... have you taken a look at your language lately?

In English I like to say that all languages have their own "idiotsyncracy"

Hernan.
Oh, you are SO right! When I'm trying to figure out what I want to say in Spanish - I often realize that my English probably ought NOT be translated directly because it is SO figurative. And I probably use figurative speech more than a lot of people because my mother uses idioms and figures of speech and little sayings for almost everything (she always has), and I have definitely picked that up from her!

Yes - I'm sure that all languages have their idio(T)syncracies. And I'm always impressed to hear someone who speaks English as something OTHER THAN their first language create "plays on words", as you just did. I think the humor shows a level of mastery that I can only hope to someday attain in my Spanish.....
