Errors of the Spanish Language. Beware of word order!

Do you dare to discover the errors of Spanish?

vino tinto o rojo

¿VINO TINTO O VINO ROJO?

Below, we present a classification of the most common word placements in Spanish.

  • Verbo + artículo + sustantivo = Desatarse una polémica / Tomar un café / Dar un beso.
  • Sustantivo + preposición + sustantivo = Llamada de teléfono / Punto de encuentro.
  • Adverbio + adjetivo = Terminantemente prohibido / Felizmente casado.
  • Verbo + adverbio = Discutir acaloradamente / Dormir profundamente.

At this point, we have to make sure we don’t confuse word order with idiomatic expressions or phrases such as “tomar el pelo”. The language cannot identify the meaning of each word but we can do so with the word order.
