Words, lado (accent on o) A verv, I imagine. Also, gratar another verb, and antojiza. Can anyone find these or tell me how or where to do it. My two dictionaries won't give me info.

The words "ladó" doesn't exist. "Gratar" is a very unusual verb, and it means to clean with a kind of brush; I don't know how to translate it, but it is probably a mistake (and the word is "gritar", as James said).

I have never heard "antojizo" before, and I think it is wrong. The correct word is most likely "antojadizo", and it means "a person who always take a fancy on something".

Of course, they could be some regional expressions or some sort of slang I am not aware of.

Grace, please put your question words in the title next time. Also, giving context always helps.

Ladó would be the past tense of ladar, but I know of no such verb. Lado means side, among other things.

Nor do I know of a verb gratar. Maybe gritar?

Antojiza might be a corruption of antojarse.

Without context, I can't answer any further. Maybe someone else can.
