In my opinion Spanish is a fascinating language and living in this environment is a constant learning experience. As I strive toward fluency I am often humbled or even humiliated by my inability to communicate certain concepts. On occasion I misuse words and confuse vocabulary to the point of being scoffed or laughed at. My plan is to post a series of tidbits I've learned, and continue to learn, about these "idiomasyncracies". Idioma means language in Spanish + idiosyncracies are life's little oddities. Thus, the little oddities in Spanish.
