My Spanish leason for today

Hello

Sometimes the smallest difference can have a big impact on what you say when you are a less than exemplary Spanish's speaker.

You can have a look at my latest blog posting.

Or if you lack the time or interest let me just tell you this

PLEASE NOTE: Cajónes means drawers in Spanish, Cojónes DOES NOT.

All the best,

Todd

Todd, thanks for your post.

You'll want to know that the spellings for those two words are cajones and cojones. Neither takes a written accent in the plural. When a Spanish word ends in the letter "S", the stress in pronunciation naturally falls on the next-to-the-last syllable. Words which in the singular have a written accent on the last syllable don't need that accent in the plural.
