El avión es el avioncito. Voy a pintar mi avioncito verde o azul.

El lago es el laguito. Él nadó en mi algo ayer.

El agua es el agüita. El agüita es sucia, no debs lo bebe!

El pan es el panecillo. El panadero hace panecillo muy bueno cada dia.

Pan = panecillo, panecito o pancito (In Venezuela we prefer the last one). The second sentence would be: El nadó en mi laguito ayer.

En realidad, es "La agüita" porque el acento ya no está en la a, sino en la i.

Actually, it is "La agüita", because the accent isn't on the a anymore but on the i.

You're right! and you could also say "el panecito" ;).

Edit:

On the third sentence, I think you wanted to say something like "El agüita está sucia, no debes beberla", right?

A little bit of water = poquita agüita (if using diminutives)

Thanks, so what would 'agüita' mean on its own?

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/F572D297

Agüita is more like "a tiny water". Is hard to explain it but I will try: picture a river, and that's "water", while "agüita" could be a small stream.

It is not clear, but is something like that :/

In Mexico "agüita" also could mean "a little bottle of water".

  • Si vas a la tienda, me compras una agüita.

No offense intended but could you maybe bundle all these exercise threads into one? You could create one post in this thread for every new exercise and people could reply to it... So, not too much would change.

But it would provide a far better overview. Right now, I feel as if the Spanish discussion board is clogged with threads that are very similar and often only a few minutes apart. Also, people interested in these exercises could just follow that discussion and keep track of it instead of about a dozen new threads in less than a day!

I disagree. It's better to have these messages in different threads. They're interesting to me, and if they are not to you, then you can just skip them.
