  1. Had to look up escarcha. ☺ Do you pronounce “z” as if it were a soft “th”, approximately? I first learned that pronunciation in Andalusia, “a-thul”. Panama doesn’t use that, though. I like esperando too.

    1. Thank you. Both the English version and the Spanish version of the word “frost” are favored words. I love the hard “c” at the beginning of “escarcha” and the soft “ch” at the end. And in “frost”, the soft “f” and “o” followed by the whisper of “st” is just perfect. They both remind me of actual frost and those sounds are wonderful.

  2. This list, in itself, is poetry. To my great shame, I know only one tongue…so I used Google Translate to learn the meanings of these lovely words…and if I may, I would add — sueno …dream…although I do not know how to pronounce the word itself. 🙂
