I can never remember cuidad = city. I always think of cuidado, which is careful or caution. So I always end up trying all kinds of synonyms for careful.

For some reason I have a similar problem with cerveza. Every time I see it, I think I'm reading cabeza, which is really not the same thing.

Help me out spanish speakers, can you have a cabeza on your cerveza? You can in English...

Cerveza is about the only one I knew without thinking. I consider it a necessity to be able to ask for beer in any country I travel to.

You're right - cuidado is careful. City is ciudad (i before the u), not cuidad.

^ yeah it's the equivalent of "insh'allah" which literally means "god willing" but in common use is closer in meaning to "piss off" or "fat chance"

'mañana' is tomorrow and 'la mañana' is morning
+2
level 48
Dec 6, 2014
Not really, it just depends on the context, "la mañana" can only be "the morning" but "de mañana" is "in the morning" you could be asked "es de mañana o tarde?" and it would be "is it in the morning or the afternoon?" you also have "el mañana" which would be "tomorrow" meaning "the future" best they can do here is accept both "tomorrow" and "morning" since that word is both.

yeah when they say "manana" to mean later or tomorrow they mean "in the morning" as in... not today.

I think pez is live fish in the water, pescado is more likely to refer to fish for eating. Kind of like cow vs beef in English

Yes, 'pez' refers to the live animal and 'pescado' reffers to dead fish, any dead fish.

Yes, I think you're right, because you can always say 'me voy a casa' meaning i'm going home or you could say 'me voy a mi casa? meaning i'm going to my house.

As I answered them, I thought they told a story - River, Girl, CatFish, Fire, Very Hot Cheese, Beer. Sounds like a nice campout by the river with catfish frying, fondue, and beer. Not sure fish and hot cheese is a combo I want to try, but still.
