High Frequency Words in Spanish – 4


Coming in at number four in the top 100 High frequency Spanish words is “y”.

“Y” means “and” in English.

It is a conjunction.

My dictionary lists five different types of use, but for the beginner, let’s face it again this is an obvious simple must-learn. “Y” is a sine qua non (for non latin speakers, and there are quite a few out there given the Roman empire’s demise a few years back, that means indispensable)

Example of use:

Voy a Madrid y a Londres. (I am going to Madrid and London). Another teacher type note – notice that London changes to Londres in Spanish.

The pronuciation is “ee”.

So there it is number four in the top one hundred Spanish words.
