@Crotalito: el bagel es una especie de dona salada. Se usa para preparar sandwiches, como los cuernitos, pero la masa es mucho más densa y pesada que la de los cuernitos.

Que yo sepa, no hay ninguna traducción al español. Mejor dejarlo en su forma original.
As far as I know, there is no Spanish translation. It's better to leave it untranslated.
You are correct. The begel is a Jewish confection. The word probably comes from the French "Bague" meaning ring. The "el" ending is a German diminuative. The "A" sound would usually be modified to a "E" using a Umlaut making it Bägel. Perhaps in Yiddish (or in English ) the umlaut was lost.

Do-nut is an American contraction of Doughnut, the spelling favo(ured in Britain. By the way we also sell biscuits called "Ginger nuts" without embarrassment, because the term does not have the same sexual connotations over here.

Dijo 'bagel' porque nunca encontré un traducción. Usualmente, como un bagel y tomo café en las mañanas, pero no tengo nada bagel(es?) hoy.

Fine sentence, Fazor!


Se conserva la ortografía y el plural para muchas palabras extranjeras. En este caso, bagel/bagels.

Oh jeeze, that's a hard one for me to put into words!

I guess you could say it means "to find", as in a dictionary.
Off the top of my head, I'd say it's only used when talking about finding some kind of data or information.

If there's a word you want to know the meaning of, you find it in the dictionary == you look it up in the dictionary.

You can also "look someone up" in the phone book -- you use the phone directory to find their phone number.

You wouldn't say "I went to the store and looked up the new movie on DVD." or "I lost my keys, but I was able to look them up."

la búsqueda , la buscada, la busca all mean a search. When you search for something in a book or you "look it up" this is not quite the same as finding it.

Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
una consulta = a lookup/a search consultar = to look up/to search for (note that the noun 'lookup' is one word, the verb must have two words 'look up')

una búsqueda = a search buscar = to search for

Given this, can you create better sentences, Crotalito? The others don't make sense.
