meaning of "una suerte de mastil inclinado"?
what is the meaning of "una suerte de mástil inclinado"? This sentence appears in a story about an ant having a hard life when trying to deal with "un palito acaso tres veces más grande que ella misma"
The word "suerte" can be translated as "type", so in this sentence can be translated as "a type of leaning pole". I hope that makes sense for you.
OK, I scanned the story the webdunce supplied. Most of the story is about this ant trying to get around this melting popsicle and catch up with the other ants. It looks like he was able to advance some distance by the luck of finding an inclining support to walk on.
One definition of "mástil" in our dictionary is "support".
I don't know the answer, but here's the complete story.
