Words for beautiful in Spanish

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I wonder about how poetic and beautiful a language can be. What I've known though is that romance languages usually take the first place because of their poetically meaningful and nice sounding words. My favorite words in spanish would be these:  

1) Gallardía - gallantry - When someone is courteous and his/her acts show courage and in general, an elegant way of acting. No wonder why there is a luxury Italian car referenced as "Gallardo". 

2) Efímero - ephemeral. This word does have an english equivalent, however, it seems to be even more poetic in Spanish because it's mostly used in literary works.

3) Ensueño - dream-like.  It's used mainly as a very positive expression where you talk about something you dream of but is quite difficult to achieve. Nonetheless every time you dream about  it, that thing is pleasurable an "ensueño". It's also used to describe something that is beautiful and is found in Spanish expressions such as "fiesta de ensueño, boda de ensueño, casa de ensueño" etc... 

4) Fantasmagoria - phantasmagoria. This word does have a similar equivalent in English both in meaning and sound. In Spanish though the  "F" and "go" sound much stronger and adds even more personality to it.

5) Algarroba - Carob - while the real thing looks and smells quite funny its sound makes this a unique word. It has this characteristic double "rr" sound that is so difficult for us english speakers to pronounce and adds up a little flair to it.

 

If you happen to have more beautiful meaning or sounding Spanish words please add them! I guess any romance language word would be ok as well.

Wow, those words are really beautiful. Unfortunately I do not speak Spanish yet but I can definitely feel the magic that comes with them!

I think "amor" is the most beautiful sounding word in Spanish for me. I love to hear how other people say love and express their love. When I first heard it it gave me a tingly feeling in my heart and in my soul.

These words are sure magical! Somehow they also remind me of the late García Marquez (nobel prize in literature) if you have the chance to read some of his short stories go ahead, they are great. Amor is a beautiful word too, especially if an important someone whispers it to you: an attractive latino or a gorgeous dancing latina girl. :wink:

Haha, in that case, I agree.

I have a speech impediment and I can't pronounce hard "R"s very well, so I'm not too fond of languages and words with them 

As far as Spanish goes, I like words which have that "th" sound like cabeza or Barcelona

Agentzero, us native english speakers have a hard time pronouncing that hard R cause we don't get to pronounce it all in our native language. Does this happen in Serbian as well?  I think we all have this problem to a certain degree. :)

The "th" sound is almost exclusive to how they speak spanish in Spain. In other places, especially Latin American countries the "th" sound doesn't exist. The word cabeza would be pronounced more as cabe(s)a an s sounding word instead of cabe(th)a a d or th sounding word.

Hm, that's interesting, I didn't know about that difference between Spain's Spanish and the one spoken in Latin America. I was taught Spanish spoken in Span then I guess.

And no, this is not a problem in Serbian, because in Serbian there is a hard "R", but like I said I have a speech impediment and can't pronounce it very "hard". I tend to roll it, if you know what I mean. My "R" actually sounds a lot like "R"s they have in French, but I just don't like saying hard "R" in general. Hey, maybe that's why I was drawn to English from the early age.

When we want to say, someone, that you are so pretty there we use "Bonita" word for pretty so the word "Bonita" sounds beautiful in Spanish.  

if you are advertising, at least make sure that the desired page loads in a reasonable time. It takes about 5-10 seconds to open the specific website that you linked to. Google will not like that :=) Advertising is only allowed in the Promote your language business section. So stop doing it in here. thank you.

The Spanish words I've come to love are Corazon (heart) and Esperanza (hope).  They just sound so beautiful when spoken.

My favorite word in Spanish has always been querida, which unfortunately I don't think means something nice as from what I understand it is a term for a mistress. Still, I find that the Spanish word itself is beautiful and I see it as something negative starting to sound like a positive when spoken using a Spanish word. I always find it interesting when negative connotations sound beautiful in certain languages so this one in particular appealed to me apart from just sounding good all on its own.

Well, querida is more like when you call somebody your beloved, mostly girls, for example "Querida! tiempo sin verte", that might be an example, mistress is not the real meaning of the word though.

I like the word Bastante which means pretty.  Tu eres muy bastante (you are very pretty) is my favorite way to use it.

I've always loved to use the word "etéreo" meaning ethereal in English. It's used to describe something so beautiful that is seemingly so delicate, untouchable, or abstract. I picked it up from studying spirituality, where it is almost exclusively used to refer to "ethereal energy", meaning energy that the naked human eye cannot see or feel, unless trained otherwise.

      Who says we got time to diligently find people to speak Spanish with? And who said you can only exchange English to Spanish and vice-versa? Who said, who said. Let’s bend the rules a little and create a free for all chat room. Find friends, add prompts  that I will then add to this post for everyone to view and respond to, as well as your USER ATTACHED so that everyone knows who wrote it. No more awkward beginnings with strangers, and just let it flow...

      You can add a translation to your Spanish post, so that you and the others can understand what you posted. We all know you’re going to look back 3 seconds later and not know what the hell you just wrote or meant. Adding the translation or hints will help you learn Spanish and memorize things faster (I think... at least it should)

      Learning languages can be hard. It's easy to fool yourself into thinking you know the words or phrases since you can pick them from a drop down list or recognize them when reading. It's easy to imagine that you've got the hang of the grammar despite sounding completely illiterate. It can be dull, boring and repetitive. That's where we come in. 
      The Feynman technique is a proven way of improving your memory and understanding of advanced topics. The Feynman technique is at the basis of every study mechanic ingrained into Estudia Espanol~~. Instead of just picking the correct answer from a list, you'll have to fill in the blank and type out full words/expressions. But don't worry! It will be paced properly and you will have time to learn each phrase/expression before being expected to suddenly memorize it. 
      On top of being a more effective system, we strive towards creating a more enjoyable experience as well. The core site will have a few major mechanics that will make it easier and more fun, but aside from the standardized learning options-- we'll include a Spanish studying text-rpg! The game will start out in English and you will be learning Spanish on your journey. Over time, the game will slowly switch to Spanish. In order to navigate dungeons and find your way through quests, you'll need to know specific Spanish vocabulary. The quest will take place in a fantasy version of Mexico with many creatures of Mexican lore making an appearance. You will face off against El Chupacabra, El Sombreron, El Cuco, Acalica, La Llorona, and even Luz Mala. The story will be scary, thought provoking and and exciting. 
      The mechanics will be a blend of JRPG/RPG mechanics, with leveling up, magic, swords, etc, and Spanish skills. In order to cast spells in this universe you will need to have command over the Spanish language. For example, if you cast the spell 'Fireball' it may ask you a question in Spanish about fire-- if you can put in the correct answer, then your fire ball will hit the target. But if you answer wrong-- it will definitely miss. How far can your Spanish skills take you? How much can you learn? How powerful can you become? 
      Aside from the game elements the website will have a lot to teach you about Spanish. There will be lessons covering the main words/phrases/expressions and the grammar of the Spanish language. The lessons will be bite sized enough you can complete them in 10-20 minutes, however, there will be around 100 of them that will teach you the main things you'll need to know about Spanish. 
      The website will also have a standard study mode. It will be similar to using flash cards, but you'll have to type in the correct answers into your keyboard. To keep things balanced, you'll see your words in English and type them in Spanish, but you'll also sometimes see them in Spanish and have to type them in English. There will be fill in the blank sections for sentences and challenges for words-- and some times questions asked in Spanish that you'll have to answer in Spanish! 
      There are some advanced features were looking to develop, but they'll take a lot of time, dedication and servers. I want to set it up so that you can add any words you've learned outside of the website and maintain any words you've learned in the website to a master list. The A.I. will then generate a list of phrases that utilize the words you know and the grammar rules you've studied, so that you can build a more comprehensive phrase list. Rather than just having a few pre-built phrases, we want it to be modular, but accurate to Spanish, so that you can diversify your learning. We also want to integrate the game elements into the study page, and visa versa. Lastly, I really want to set up user accounts for the website/game so that you can save/load your data on any platform, get advanced features, get items for the in-game RPG, and ultimately, face off against other users online in challenges/battles.
