Articulación

This is a discussion thread for the Daily Spanish Word for April 2, 2009

articulación (feminine noun (la)) — articulation, joint. Look up articulación in the dictionary

Después de jugar, me empezaron a doler las articulaciones de los dedos.
After playing, my finger joints started to hurt.

¡Ah! Gracias. Voy a hacer una nota.

Pero, ¿se usa una palabra más que otra o en algunas partes una se usa más que otra?

Gracias de nuevo.

Yo creo que "articulación" se usa más en ambientes donde se supone que hay una mayor escolarización, así que dependería de con quién estás hablando, pero ambas se usan mucho.

Me parece que uno dice "me duelen las articulaciones" y pueden ser cualquiera de ellas, pero cuando uno dice, me duele esta o esta otra coyontura es algo mas particular/específico. No?

I use always "articulación", I didn't know "coyuntura" was also "articulación"
For me coyuntura it's a moment/oportunity , it´s 2 or 3 in the RAE.
Quote:
RAE

Ok that's the answer. Articualción is joint in Spain. In Latin America it is the medical profession's word for joint. Coyuntura is more commonly used word for joint in Latin America among people who are not in the medical profession.

In English, articulation usually has something to do with clarity of speech, but in the medical field is has to do with joints and movement. Non-medical people will almost certainly not understand that meaning, but a rheumotologist would.

Do you agree with Sosia that, in Spain, articulción is more commonly used for joints than coyuntura?
I think I am now an official language nerd.
