that "for" I don't know if I have heard it outside the satanic books
Is it right to use "for" as "because"? I wouldn't like to make anybody laugh while they're dying

pinhed the linguist confirms that the usage of "for" in the above context is correct, true and righteous, and affixes the Pinhed Seal Of Approval hereto. What a Face

It surprised me when I heard the expresion to know by heart when we say saberse de memoria- to know by memory (faculty)
But then we say recordar (remember, remind)-coming from latin cor (heart)- to go throught the heart twice or something similar
and you say memory also meaning recuerdo

When I first moved from Minnesota to Virginia, I met this girl that had come from the more westerly panhandlish part of Virginia. She was half Indian (native American), too.

She used to say "I reckon" alot. I love you

Why don't we just replace human translators with computers? scratch

" .... for you it is better not weeping,
I am talking you why ...
Santa Klaus is suitable for a city." bounce

"... It is further, Rocket Launcher! To the competitors! Buy!
It is further, Donder and Wouldlitzen!"

¡Ajúa!

2. the human equivalency of mating calls
