Alt 164 works! And when I typed that in this came up: moño

masculine noun

  1. bun (de pelo)

' hacerse un moño (of hair) -> to put one's hair up in a bun

' agarrarse del moño (figurative) -> to pull each other's hair out (pegarse)

' estar hasta el moño (de) (informal) -> to be sick to death (of) (peninsular Spanish)

  1. bow (lazo) (Am)

  2. bow tie (pajarita) (Mexican Spanish)

Thanks for your help!!

No problem, if however, you want to type all Spanish accents, then do as Natasha suggested above. Go to FAQ and on the list you will see "how do I type the Spanish accents marks", just click there.

A quick answer if that's the only letter you want, is ALT held down and then 164 on the numerical pad.

Look under the forum FAQ for "How do I type the Spanish accent marks'".

"When I hear moño I think of a bow, like a ribbon tied in a bow."

I too was under the impression that moño meant possibly a ribbon tied in a bow, but also a bow tie, like part of a tuxedo. Perhaps that´s what his vocab word was referring too'

There are a number of ways to type accents. there are topics on the forum about it that can be searched out. If you don't want to go to too much trouble , and you are using Windows, There is also a program in Windows called Character map that will let you paste special characters into your document.

"bottom"? Are you not thinking of "bum"?

When I hear moño I think of a bow, like a ribbon tied in a bow. But I think the question was how to type an eñe. In your word processor program you should be able to insert it as a symbol. But depending on which one you have there should be an easier way to do it. On mine I hold down Ctrl and Shift at the same time, while doing that I push the button to the left of the 1 key (it has the tilde above what looks like a reversed comma.) Then I let go of all that and hit the n. On my version of Word that does it.

Although topknot is correct, the more common word for this women's hairstyle is "bun." At least in American English... We use topknot for those old-fashioned Japanese and Chinese hairstyles, among others.

Thank you all, can someone tell me how to key in "ene" for future translations?

Strange that a 1st graders spelling word means topknot or bun. He is in a Spanish Immersion class, I just wish they'd give the parents the English translation we need to help them with their homework.
Thanks goodness for this site, I've started taking the basic lessons here myself.
