How do you say in Spanish, or How do you pronounce it in Spanish.
Hello, I am a beginner learning Spanish and I am writing down useful phrases while I am in Mexico.
Example: If I hold up a book (and I do not know the Spanish word) should I say
¿Cómo se dice en español? or ¿Cómo se pronuncia en español?
And what is the difference in meaning.
Hi Curt882503. ¿Cómo se dice? it's How do you say? but ¿Cómo se pronuncia? means How to pronounce? If you are holding a book in your hand you should ask ¿Cómo se dice...(book in Spanish)? But if you find a sign with the word Norte, and you are not sure that you are saying the word correctly you should ask ¿Cómo se pronuncia...(the word in the sign). I hope that helps.
