What is the English translation of eg Miguel suspendió historia.
First of all, I don't know if you already know, but at the top of the page there is a tab that says "Translation." That tab works wonders!
I'm really not sure about "eg," but the rest literally means "Michael suspended history." I'm assuming that the intended sentence is "Michael failed/flunked/did not pass history." Perhaps use a different verb...
Glad to help, nrdyAWSM
The site's dictionary has the answer to this. Look at #2:
-1. to hang (up) (colgar)
- lo suspendieron de una cuerda/de un clavo -> they hung it from a rope/nail
-2. to fail (examen, asignatura) (peninsular Spanish)
- me suspendieron la Historia -> I failed History
-3. to suspend (interrumpir); to adjourn (reunión, sesión)
- el partido se suspendió a causa de la lluvia -> the match was postponed o called off because of the rain
-4. to suspend (sancionar) (trabajador); to suspend (alumno) (Am)
- suspender a alguien de empleo y sueldo -> to suspend somebody without pay
Looks like that meaning is for Spain only. We don't use it like that in Argentina. There, It would be understood as if Miguel is the History teacher, and he has suspended the class, similar to #3.
Michael/Miguel flunked history.
