Does 'responsable' mean 'responsible' as in 'responsible for the occurrence of an event' or as in 'a person who is mindful of their responsibilities?
It means both.
I had the same question. As a follow up though, is there a more commonly used word for either of those definitions? Or is responsable used for both commonly?
my granddad is also correct english
I suspect that "grandpappy" would meet the same ugly fate.
How about gramps? Or the old man?
Those are really really colloquial translations. With Duo, it's better to stick to the more formal, standard translations.
EXACTLY the case. I was mocking the idea that anything but "grandfather" should be applied in our learning basic Spanish.
I've used "grandad" before and it was fine, why not now? :(
I accidentally spelt it grandad so got it wrong >:(
it is correct English, but that is not what the Spanish says.
MY GRANDFATHER IS RESPONSIBLE! HE DID IT!
lol Grandpa did it!
What would it be like to have an irresponsible grandpa?
The movie Bad Grandpa sums that up pretty nicely.
My grandpa is very responsible! He cleans his coffin every night!
Mine is dead
Abuelito may be used more often for granddad, grandpa etc.
Grandpa is accepted but grandad isn't?
Should be "granddad", although I don't know if that's accepted either.
This sentence would fit in better in the german lessons...
man kids these days, blaming everything on there grandparents.
Same problem with grandad, it's hardly slang.
"my old man is responsible" is also correct according to the drop-down translation of abuelo
Yes, blame grandpa. :p
way to throw him under the bus!
way to pass the buck to poor old grandpa...
he is the one who stole the lingots!
Way to throw your grandpa under the bus! You back stabbing turd!
You mean the one that has his loaded gun where we haveaccess to it?(i am 14)
Its so funny that they put one of the translations as old man
no it is not
i am spanish
It said i was wrong when i ised "grandpappy"
