I was thinking about people. We can cut, do cut, don't always cut. So I can see that the distinction might work if you compare "la camisa y la pan" because you can't cut the pan. Except you could, with appropriate equipment. There must be more to the distinction... Living or not living?
To anybody interested in Hungarian. Not being a native English speaker, I didn't understand why corto/ bajo is an issue. Then I got it: short/short. :) In HU there is a different word for each: corto/a= rövid (subjects, books,etc.) , bajo/a = alacsony (person or building). (Of course, these are the most frequently used words.) :)
Bajo/Alto: opposite. And Corto./Largo: opposite. Corto= short in length or duration., Bajo= short in stature.
La camisa corta/larga: the short/long shirt La camisa grande/pequeña: the large/small shirt. La mujer baja/alta.
La pelicula es corta (short in duration) La cuchara es corta. (short in length) él es corto (= stupid) él es bajo. (= he's short in stature) El avión vola bajo (here: adverb, not an adjective)= low altitude.
Corto = "short" horizontally (like a river, and for clothing) "Bajo= "short" vertically (like a person)
Quote: "Actually depending in the region you are, different words can be used for the same purpouse. But, at least here, it's kind of weird hear the word "corto" to refer about how tall a person is. Of course you can hear it some time but, it doesn't mean that it's the most common expression."
Easy, easier, easiest. Or "more easy," but that's not common usage although it's grammatically correct. But not both, "more easier."
"Y, ier, est" show how much. More easier is redundant; kids and non native speakers "most" make that mistake. Also, more (add/+) and most (add/+ than all others) but not mostest. So -- she has fruit, he has more fruit, he has the most fruit. Then -- she has, it has, we have, they have. Sigh...
English basically is a horrible language to learn, so it's a horrible first language if you try to learn another. It makes sense you are finding it "easier" to grasp.
The green button that you pressed to get here said view discussion. If you view this discussion, your question will be answered. A very good practice to get into, before asking a question, read through all the comments. Usually, by the time you get to the end, you will have the answer. Tip: these discussion forums are generally very insightful, and in my opinion, form another big part of the learning process. Good luck..
