How would you "spring" as in a source of water?
If i were to say "A river comes from a spring." What word would i use for "spring"?
According to the dictionary it would be "manantail", or "resorte".
"de un río viene un resorte" and that is just my attempt at the language so please feel free to correct.
I do not think that "resorte" applies to a water spring or well spring.
I think "resorte" is more of a mechanical spring as in a watch, bed-spring or automobile.
I wonder if "resorte" should be avoided in reference to water just as we would not use the word "primavera" in describing a water spring.
What do others think? Should only "manantial" be used in the context of a cold water spring?
My vote goes for manantial.
According to the dictionary it would be "manatail", or "resorte".
Hopefully the dictionary says "manantial", because "manantail" doesn't exist.
