A - Z Same word (or almost the same) both languages

22
votes

I often look for a translation of an English word, only to find that its almost, or even exactly the same in Spanish.

I think it would be helpful to know some of the easiest words to learn.

So lets make an A - Z game out it.

Normal rules, click on "newest", follow the alphabet.

Add both language versions, with any spelling variations, accents etc. ( estación for example. )

Add any further comments, or an example sentence, or a picture if you wish.

A acceptable. ¿Es este juego aceptable? Is this game acceptable?

If you ask for a sample sentence then you need someone proficient in Spanish to correct them., i.e., you need a moderator. - --Mariana--, JUL 9, 2010
Tricky! By the way, "Acceptable" is "Aceptable" in Spanish. Only one "c" - Gekkosan, JUL 9, 2010
I checked it looking for an accent, and missed the c ! Proving my own point. - fontanero, JUL 9, 2010
Remember!, "suspición" is *not* a word. :) - MeEncantanCarasSonrisas, JUL 9, 2010

Manifiesto-- manifest

Edit I have just learned from a very reliable source (wink) that the word is spelled "manifiesto" in Spanish. Moreover, it does not have the same general meaning in English, i.e., a public declaration of political principles and intentions. Instead, a political manifest would be best called "programa electoral" in Spanish.
