Can someone explain to me why como is used two ways?
como can mean "I eat" and it can mean "like, how" That is just the way things are. Many English words have multiple meanings, too. A snake can be an animal or a tool used to clean a drain, for example. Riveting can be the act of fastening metal together, or it can mean 'compelling, fascinating."
Thanks, that helps. So basically I just need to pay attention as to the nature of the topic and context of the statement?
yeah, i would agree, those are the only two i can think of i was just having trouble thinking of the "i eat" one since I only ever see or use that one in its specific context xD
