Word For The Day, Tuesday January 28, 2014
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
3. pharmacist's assistant
4. common term for a cook or chef working for free at a restaurant.
\kahn-SAH-doh, -dah\ adj : tired, tiresome
Ella generalmente está cansada cuando llega a casa.
Shes usually tired when she gets home.
H/t to Superior Motors for the fancy French term for slave labor.
Some music for today:
...And, of course, stagiaires are always very tired when they have finished their shifts.
I guess I need to give you an A+ for that.
Apparently the ping is on a delay this morning. ;-)
Trad-i-tion! Oh great, now I have a Fiddler earworm.
If you attended more frequently you would know that we are going bilingual on Tuesdays this year.
And I guess because I normally do not bother with grades, but your submission was outstanding.
Dang blasted crown snapped in half last night and fell out at Bible study. On my way to dentist soon. All I can say is this is better than sinus problems. Oh, and it snowed again last night, just enough to have to clean off the car yet again.
That crown is not just a dental fixture, it’s like a jobs program.
well i would take off for using SER instead of ESTAR to show a temporary condition and not a permanent trait... ; )
if there is a world record for # of replacements for a temp crown, YOU are the record holder!
Hey, I'm all for bilingual efforts: I live in Panama and am (pretty seriously) trying to learn Spanish. Neat idea.
La iglesia esta al lado de rio.
They presumably don't move the church every so often, do they??
I am not sure there’s a logical explanation in every case for those things, you just end up having to know when to use it in certain instances. You could avoid it by saying La iglesia queda al lado del rio. My spanish is rusty. I took it from 7th grade all through HS and majored in it in college. Also did two stints in Colombia, SA, in college, doing a research project and living with a family. These days my only use of spanish is talking to my cleaning lady and my lawn guys. Embarrassing!
