But we're all different when we sleep
FYI: In Chile and maybe other latin american countries Rico is also sweet/cute
thanks, I was womdering about that, but a grandfather's wealth factor is certainly more important ;)
Grandad should be accepted. We dont say grandpa in england.
Granddad is, not sure about "Grandad" though.
We do. :-)
"Grandad" should have been marked as correct because it is the same meaning as grandpa
I think it's usually spelled "Granddad" and may have been accepted that way.
does rico also have another meaning? such as "emparedado es muy rico"? i heard something like that before and assumed "rico" meant tasty
Yes. It also means tasty.
Your grandfather is delicious.
why does the robo lady say "rico" with a rolling r? I thought it would have to have to be "rrico" for that?
Most R's are rolled just a bit, especially at the beginnings of words I've noticed, it's just far more pronounced in words with double R's.
Hola SpookySqueeek: All "Rs" at the beginning of words are rolled. Then, also,yes all double "Rs" within a word.
Gracias Lisagnipura, I had the same confusion! By the way, Happy Learning! :)
Leading Rs are rolled. For example, Rio.
Hola Matthew49: All "Rs" at the beginning of words are rolled. Then, also,yes all double "Rs" within a word.
It England we say grandad
Good for you, mate.
I heard that
Your grandfather is rich becose he have too much money.
Can rico be used like "Oh, that's rich?" In english, that phrase is used to denote something ironic/amuzing, does it work like this in spanish? Or would there be a separate word/phrase for this?
Grandad should be accepted
Well maybe don't be so judgemental of his strange habits.
grandad is an acceptable translation in English
Grandad was rejected, but its a common UK alternative to Granddad.
Even funnier, duo bot suggests "granddaddy" as preferred translation. Too much Waltons in compilation, lol.
I wish haha
And I appreciate that fact very much! He's kind AND generous.
Good thing it doesn't takw grandpa
Can this sentence also translate to "Your grandpa is tasty" ? I see a lot in some of these weird cam sites the men are like "que rica" to the girl, so i mean...
Yeah he was in the moffia
She (the electronic voice) is geriatrophile. Rico: Sweet, Tasty
I am not complaining, but I chose "wealthy" over "rich," because rich can also mean different or odd.
Hola mexicanfoodfreak: I never learned/heard/have seen "rich" to mean "different or odd". Just curious: Where did you learn/hear/see that definition? Thanks. Gracias.
I wouldn't worry about it. You know what rich means. There can appear for a time fad usages of words where they can mean the opposite of what they actually mean in street slang talk. The word, "sick," for example. So stupid.
they asked for the regular word for grandfather. granddad, gramps or similar would be 'Nono'
