Babelfish beauty

Hernan Gonzalez has posted a list of 250 beautiful Spanish words. If asked, Babelfish will translate them. An eclectic sampling:

SpanishEnglish
abedulbirch
aguawater
almohadapillow
cuadernonotebook
encrucijadacrossroads
humosmoke
naranjaorange
pincelbrush
remolinoeddy
terciopelovelvet
variopintomany-colored


On a related note, Fray Nelson (who is always worth reading) has been writing (in Spanish) about the Irish Republican Army. Babelfish obligingly translates "IRA" as "WRATH."
