Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

NOT in RAE, full of yuca "biñuelo" is the correct spelling for the Panamanian food: [2]. This is clearly a misspelling; check Google for biñuelo and you'll find less than 200 hits, which would be completely unexpected for a staple food item. Not a misspelling at all. A thorough Google search (binuelo OR biñuelo OR binuelos OR biñuelos) gets 1,060 hits. Even Google Books gets 118 hits when you include the variants, some of which are very interesting. biñuelo is cleary a rarer variant of buñuelo that goes back at least a couple of centuries in parts of Spain as well as in parts of Latin America. I have travelled in both Mexico and Panama and the biñuelos I saw in Panama looked nothing remotely like the buñuelos I saw in Mexico.
