Español, Spanish, another word in Spanish, means ‘look’, but the word is often used in other contexts.
In a 2013 poll, 43 percent of Spanish-speakers said they would prefer to use ‘look Spanish’ over ‘look English’.
That’s the same as the figure for American English (35 percent).
The word ‘spanish’ comes from the verb spécial which means to look at, but it’s often used to refer to a foreign language or culture rather than a person or a group of people.
In the United States, the word ‘Spanish’ is the second most popular foreign language spoken after English.
But it’s the only one that comes in at least five different words: Spanish, Spanish-English, Spanish-, Spanish-speaking, Spanish-.
The term ‘Spanish-English’ is another of those five.
But unlike Spanish, English is used in more than one context in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
