La Oreja o el oído?
¿Cuál es la diferencia entre las palabras oreja y oído?
The orejas are where you wear your earrings or ear rings, nowadays. The oídos are what you hear with.
oreja = external ear
oído = entire ear
oído interno = inner ear
La oreja is the complete ear wheras el oido is the inner ear.
Its interesting how things evolve. When I was a child, (and Im going back over 50 years ago), my elders taught me that; 'oreja' was the ear of an animal and 'oído' was the ear of a human.
