¡Ay!

Welcome to SpanishDict!

A drawback to dictionaries has always been: How do you look up something if you can't spell it!

But you had a fifty-fifty chance. You would have gotten it sooner or later.

The Translate Box at the top comes in real handy when you don't want to wait for an answer, useful for the one word questions like this. And if you click on the speaker icon there, you even get the pronunciation!

Another trick is to double click on the words you've typed (or in the answers) and get a quick response, too! Just no pronunciation help there.

But if it was my leg that was broken you would have heard a lot more than just ¡Ay!

Hope this helps.
