Aprende que "vegetables" es "verduras" en español, pero ví "vegetales" y "vehículos" a veces....
Are they just multiple choices for saying the same thing, or do they have different shades of meaning or connotation? Do you know if there are regional differences in what is preferred?
From what I've seen it seems 'verdura' is more commonly used than the others, however, I would say they're synonyms.
'Vegetal' may also refer to plants in general. 'El mundo vegetal' - 'The plant kingdom'
Hope that helped a bit
Wow - "vehículos" must be some regional thing - it typically means "vehicles". "Verduras", "vegetales", "legumbres" or "hortalizas" all mean "vegetables".
Isn't "vegetal" an adjective? Por ejemplo, "un bocadillo vegetal" is a vegetable sandwich?
