how do you say: turn around
A person turning their body around? Darse la vuelta.
Me di la vuelta- I turned around
Date la vuelta - (you) turn around
Seriously dude? that sounds so wierd.... date vuelta.. Is that like...a really weird form of volver? Gives you to turn around.....date vuelta....man that's weird.
Below is an interesting discussion on darse la vuelta. The original question was whether the diacritical accent mark on the formal command dé remained when you attached the reflexive pronoun se. Is it dése or dese? The accent isn't needed, but then neither was it needed on dé except to differentiate it from de. One reply said it was dese, but the argument quickly changed to whether the la was needed. It seems that in Spain it is darse la vuelta and in some L.A. countries it is darse vuelta.
Voltear is used to say turn around, like if you are turning around to see something from behind, coming at you from a different direction, esp the head.
Escuché que la puerta se abrió y bien rapidito volteé a ver quien estaba.
I heard the door open so I turned around quickly to see who was there.
Webdunce said - How about: girate?
Unfortunately "girar" can mean to spin so this command might suggest you want someone to keep turning until they are giddy. Now there's a word I haven't had to write for a while and had to double check the spelling, hehe.
