Spanish word for snap/break
I was watching a movie (The Mummy, I think) and there was a scene where they hung someone. When the guy started to swing on the rope, someone said "Su cuello no past-tense-verb". I guessed the phrase to be "Your neck didn't snap" - but I forgot the verb before I had a chance to look in the dictionary. Can someone please offer a suggestion a to what verb could have been used there? It was not romper. Thanks.
Whoops...must have been in a hurry, I missed that line. Sorry!
Maybe you can find it here
Let us know if you find it
Yes, but she said the verb wasn't romper.
I think in that context, they might say "romper" ("rompio").
Could the verb be "partir" (the word being partió)'
No - I know the word quebrar - it was not that either. Thanks.
"Quebro" .. is that what you heard?
pronounced KE BRO
