Spanish word of the day: "Arroba" . Part of Speech: noun Meaning: @ . One night while backpacking in Argentina, I wanted to check my email at a hostel. But I couldn’t figure out the foreign keyboard, so I had to clumsily ask in Spanish, “Where’s the, uhm, the little thing, like an “a,” with a circle, you know? The thing for email addresses?” . He stared at me, confused, and then finally responded. “Ah. Arroba.“ . The word has since come in handy many times while dictating my email address over the phone to new friends, co-workers and various public servants . The arroba also accomplishes a unique function in Spanish: It allows Spanish-speakers to be gender-neutral in their writing. In Spanish, many words to describe people have gendered endings, with an “o” for males and an “a” for females. Traditionally, when referring to a mixed-gendered group, Spanish speakers default to the masculine “o” ending . However, those who want to emphasize the fact that they are referring to all genders use an arroba, since it looks kind of like a mashed-up “o” and “a.” For example, a Spanish speaker might start a group email with “¡Hola a tod@s!” (Hello everyone!). When apartment hunting in Spain, I frequently saw listings that read “buscando compañer@ de piso” (seeking male or female roommate).
" 'I can do this', Han thought to himself, 'I can totally cop a feel on her booby' Han mustered the very last reserves of his energy and lifted up his hand. Having gone through a harrowing feat of bravery and daring while just barely surviving, his confidence was at its zenith. His logic was sound enough. He was freshly wounded and the hero of the battle, he had impressed her AND he had some pity going for him. 'Thank God my hair gel held up' he whispered thankfully. This would surely prove to be the defining moment of his life" That's what this says. #dreamcast#thelegendwillneverdie#soulcalibur#translations
