    I forgot the file name that identifies the tags, but

    immigración -> inmigración

    Numero -> Número (not all of them)

     
  • You are right, of course.  Fixed now, thank you.

    By the way, spelling errors are "faltas de ortografía".  So a message like this we would title "Ortografía".  "Deletrear" is of course saying the letters that make up a word one by one, something we rarely do except for proper names.  In most cases we would say, for instance, "¿cómo se escribe abeja?" and the answer is "sin hache y con be" (or "be alta" in some areas), the remaining letters are evident.   We rarely demand, expect or receive a full spelling.

    Thanks for the info.  I had a feeling "deletreo" didn't sound right.

    I used to always say "¿Cómo se escribe?" until someone who was allegedly an expert chewed me out for not using  deletrear   I will now switch back to what I've always suspected was right.  :-)
