Translation Sites are Ineffective!! Bottom line Can you spot the issues between the original article in Spanish and the translation using an Internet translator?

How to correctly use a bilingual dictionary 1. Look up unmodified words Dictionaries try to put as much info as possible in a small amount of space. Many words have more than one form: nouns can be singular or plural (and

sometimes masculine or feminine): nio, nia, nios, nias adjectives can be comparative and superlative: guapo, guapsimo verbs can be conjugated into different tenses: tengo, tuve, tena, tenga, tendr, he tenido, ten

1. Look up unmodified words Typically dictionaries use the simplest form of the word: The singular noun the simplest form of the adjective the infinitive of the verb 1. Look up unmodified words

For example, you may not find a dictionary entry for the word camarera, so you need to replace the feminine ending -a with the masculine -o, and then when you look up camarero, you'll find it means "waiter," so camarera obviously means "waitress." What is the unmodified form of the words

underlined? Ave Mara por David Bisbal Ave Mara, cuando sers1 ma Si me quisieras2, todo te dara3 Ave Mara, cuando sers ma Al mismo cielo, yo te llevara4. Write your answers on your worksheet.

Dime tan solo una palabra Que me devuelva5 la vida Y se me quede en el alma Porque sin ti no tengo nada Envulveme6 con tus besos7 Y ya ms nada te pido Y cuando yo te veo8, no s lo que siento Y cuando yo te tengo9, me quemo por dentro

Y ms...y ms de ti yo me enamoro10 T eres lo que quiero T eres mi tesoro 2. Keep it in context Both Spanish and English have a lot of homonyms, or words that look alike but have more than one meaning. It's only by paying

attention to context that you can tell whether cura, for example, is referring to a "cure" or a "priest. Complete activity D. 3. Know your parts of speech Some homonyms can even be two different parts of speech.

Example: Produce" Verb (They produce a lot of cars) Noun (They have the best produce). Spanish: The Spanish verb is producir The noun is producto. If you don't pay attention to the part of speech of the

word you want to translate, you may end up with a big grammatical mistake in whatever you're writing. 3. Know your parts of speech Pay attention to gender (which can change the meaning of words). Example: una cereza = cherry

un cerezo = cherry tree 4. Find the important word When you want to look up an expression, there are two possibilities: 1.) Find it in the entry for the first word in the expression

2.) More likely it will be listed in the entry of the most important word in the expression. Example: de acuerdo (agreed) is listed under acuerdo rather than de. 4. Find the important word Typically the important word is a noun or

verb. Dont agonize over finding the right word. Many times, you can find an expression listed in multiple places. 5. Understand your dictionary's shortcuts In order to save space, dictionaries use all

kinds of symbols and abbreviations. All of these symbols and abbreviations provide important information about how, when, and why to use any given word. Pay attention to this information when choosing your translations. 6. Pay attention to figurative language and idioms

A lot of words and expressions have at least two meanings: a literal meaning and a figurative one. Bilingual dictionaries will list the literal translation(s) first, followed by any figurative ones. Example: Blue the color (azul) Blue the feeling of sadness (sentirse triste)

6. Pay attention to figurative language and idioms Be careful about idioms, which are phrases typical in a language that cannot be translated literally. Example: Its raining cats and dogs.

Llover a cntaros (Its raining pitchers.) 7. Test your translations: Try it in reverse After looking up a word going from English to Spanish, look up the new found word in Spanish. Example: Look up Purple morado, violeta, prpura

Then, look up Morado bluish-purple Then, look up Violeta violet Then, look up Prpura red-violet Using an internet dictionary Go to www.wordreference.com Select Spanish-English from the drop down

menu. Type in fuerte Start your search by finding the correct part of speech. Fuerte is an adjective, adverb, and noun. (Notice the adj, adv, and nm next to some of the translations.)

In parentheses, you will see various ways to explain fuerte plus a translation of these. Underneath the various ways to say fuerte, you will see a sample sentence. If you keep going down the page, you will also see phrases that have fuerte as part of them.

Now type in strong in the box at the type and select English to Spanish from the drop-down menu. You will see all the Spanish forms of strong, much like we did in Spanish. If something is in blue, hold your mouse over it and you will find out what the abbreviation means.

As you search, be careful of accents. Many times, as you type a word in the search box, you will see various options appear beneath the search box. Use these if you need a word with accents (as you cannot type them in the search box yourself). Another option: Type the word without an

accent and find the accented word on the page. Double-check verb conjugations Wordreference.com also has a tool to help you figure out the conjugation of a verb. After typing a verb in Spanish in the search box, then select conjugator

Double-check verb conjugations OR, on the homepage of wordreference.com: Near the top of the page is an option Verb conjugators. Hover mouse over that option, choose Spanish. On the new page, type in your verb. Double-check verb conjugations

Example: You cant remember the preterite tense of the verb poder. Type in poder and hit enter. Then, look for the preterite conjugations to check the correct form. Dont forget to choose the correct subject.
