Oh, for some reason, on my phone, "nen" was not "niño," but rather stayed "nen."
Actually, I'm sorry, it was "nene," which turns out to be the Spanish word for baby (yes, I am trying to use this to learn Catalan, even though Spanish is my weakest language). I think my answer with nino was wrong, though, because I left out the "a," one of the idiosyncrasies of Spanish that makes my use of this program so frustrating.
Kudos to you for learning Catalan and Spanish from the Windy City! Do not hesitate to ask for help anytime. Maybe you can help English students like me as well. I have noticed your lack of the letter ñ in the word niño. This can be an annoyance when using your EN keyboard while learning foreign languages. You can customize it if you want to make your life easier. If you do not know how just ask.
Pure laziness, I'm afraid. I tend to do Catalan on my phone, which has all of the letters easily. I keep some other keyboards on my computer, but as I said, I don't use much Spanish. Thanks for the offer.
