  • I originally spotted this one in my Compact Spanish Translation Dictionary ... coincidentally my actual dictionary lacks it.

    Is it in the Spanish dictionary because of a need for me to know it, is it a common characteristic to Spanish speaking people? One day you speak too many double L's as Y's and that vein on the leg just goes nuts?
