Un acrónimo es una palabra formada con fragmentos de otras palabras y que se puede leer, a su vez, como una palabra (es decir, sin necesidad de deletrear). La acronimia es un procedimiento de formación de palabras por abreviación de otras palabras. Posee una gran vitalidad en nuestros días y, por tanto, está dando lugar

Just by coincidence Alan Levine dug up a question I've been thinking about this week, leading me to pose a question, which in turn led Grant Potter to point me toward BRCK, a company and hardware platform offering distributed web access to people who can't afford it. The way they...

En la entrada publicada en este mismo blog el 9 de julio de 2009 escribí lo siguiente: Yo habría sido un gran coleccionista si hubiera tenido un poco más de paciencia y hubiera sabido definir el objeto de interés. El espíritu de coleccionista lo tengo, las cualidades no. Siempre he pensado que el profesor de E/LE se mueve entre dos polos en cuyo justo medio está la virtud: en un extremo se sitúa

Parece todo una sola palabra, pero en realidad son tres: de comer aparte.       Aparte es un adverbio (o sea, una de esas palabras que no tienen masculino ni femenino, ni singular ni plural, como bien, mal, lejos o cerca) que tiene un significado básico: '
