Cypress wrote:There are some words with the same meaning that, however, are different in Spanish spoken in Spain and Spanish spoken in Mexico. So I want to make a list of these words, and since this thread is called Spanish in Mexico and since we have a few members from Mexico, I thought it’s a good place to start. Here is what I’ve got so far, but if you know some more, please post them here.
English: Spanish Spain - Spanish Mexico
Bedroom: el dormitorio - la recámara
pen: el bolígrafo - la pluma
swimming pool: la piscina - la alberca
