"Calavera" is another word for skull. "Esqueleto" is the word for skeleton.
Apr 11th, 2012 at 13:33 GMT
Yep, thanks for catching that.
Apr 14th, 2012 at 01:47 GMT
should be "la frente" and "la piel", they are both feminine in Spanish
Apr 14th, 2012 at 02:05 GMT
ditto on "la frente" and "la piel." Also oído has an accent on the "i". Would have been fun to work in "muslo" which means "thigh" since it is often mixed up with "músculo/muscle."

All better now. I figured I would probably make some mistakes with the articles. It's been too long since I've taken Spanish.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 17:55 GMT
Strictly speaking, the articles are hardly necessary-- it's basically putting "the" before each word, which I hardly see as necessary if all that's required is translating them.
As a native speaker of the Spanish language, I must admit I've seen that in most languge quizzes on this site, but I have never been able to figure out why it's done. Or would anyone care to enlighten me?

@SpotXSpot: As a student of Spanish, I'd say we put el/la in front of nouns so we know which gender it is. Obviously in English this wouldn't be necessary but in Spanish, it can be helpful!
Apr 27th, 2012 at 18:49 GMT
"Calavera" is usually for a dead body or for skull and corrbones! "Craneo" is skull as a part of the body.

Not gonna lie...I got a little nervous when el labio popped up.

Knowing French was helpful (Cintura/Ceinture is belt in french) and hurtful (espalda/les epaules are the shoulders in french, not the back.)
Jun 1st, 2012 at 16:12 GMT
It's kind of tricky when "dedo" comes up, and "toe" is counted as a wrong answer when it's really not...
Jun 1st, 2012 at 16:16 GMT
knowing french, or for that matter any related language, helps a lot
Jun 1st, 2012 at 17:26 GMT
Knowing Spanish really helped.

Thank you, James Robinson (author of The Shade comic book) for teaching me what La Sangre means.

Only got Skull because of Grim Fandango.

can anyone verify the URL as Don't look a gift horse in the teeth?

Conclusion: I can't speak Spanish.
Jun 1st, 2012 at 22:40 GMT
I guess I can tear up my application to Spanish med school. And Spanish dental school And that Spanish auto repair course....
Jun 1st, 2012 at 22:49 GMT
I was taught both of the ear terms in my Spanish classes, but I have yet to come across a speaking situation where I have to differentiate between the inner and outer parts of my ear...
Jun 1st, 2012 at 23:06 GMT
interesting, toe literally in Spanish is finger of the foot.
Jun 1st, 2012 at 23:55 GMT
@chikka2: yes, that's the literal translation of the proverb that appears in the front page ("A caballo regalado no se le miran los dientes"). That's the usual form in Spanish; I suppose that in English it's more often quoted as "in the mouth", but the idea is the same (you can tell a horse's age by looking at its teeth).
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 02:26 GMT
I haven't had Spanish class in almost two years, and I realized how quickly I lost 11 years of Spanish. D:
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 02:41 GMT
Baxter, you know I don't speak Spanish.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 03:00 GMT
it literally translates to "a gift horse's teeth will look."
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 14:47 GMT
Dedo is more appropriately translated as digt. Toe is a digit of the foot.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 14:49 GMT
In Peru, they reserve pelo for animal fur and use cabello (not to be confused with the spanish word for horse) when talking about human hair.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 21:13 GMT
I must wholeheartedly agree with SpotXSpot. The articles are not only unnecessary but highly annoying to me as a Spanish speaker.
Jun 3rd, 2012 at 16:14 GMT
In Argentina when we'ew talking about the "spine" we say "columna vertebral" or "espina dorsal" instead of "espinazo"
Jun 3rd, 2012 at 16:51 GMT
Now why did I think pechos were nipples?
Jun 4th, 2012 at 07:15 GMT
I only knew what "la cintura" was because I do so much Zumba... not sure whether I'm proud or horrified.
Jun 6th, 2012 at 14:56 GMT
Wait, "beard" is a feminine noun? And more than half of you knew that?
Jun 9th, 2012 at 16:54 GMT
This game is muy bien!

I thought I was good at Spanish... I got nine.
