Usage notes[edit]
  • Faz is chiefly poetic (and otherwise archaic) and has been replaced in Modern Spanish by cara (face) or rostro.
  • Faz also has a doublet, haz, with the same meaning except that it underwent the conversion of f to h that occured in the transition of Old Spanish to Modern Spanish (e.g. facer (to do, to make) to hacer (to do, to make)).
