    Default The parts of the body.

    Interesting names for body parts are being discussed in another thread, so I thought we'd go over all of them for those of us still learning.

    la cabeza/ the head
    el pelo/ the hair
    la cara/ the face
    los oídos/ the ears
    los ojos/ the eyes
    la nariz/ the nose
    la boca/ the mouth
    los labios/ the lips
    la barbilla/ el mentón/the chin
    el cuello/ the neck
    los hombros/ the shoulders
    los brazos/ the arms
    las manos/ the hands
    los dedos/ the fingers
    las uñas/ the fingernails
    el pecho/ the chest
    los senos/ the breasts
    las entrerroscas/ the nipples
    la cintura/the waist
    las caderas/ the hips
    el estómago/ the stomach
    las piernas/ the legs
    los pies/ the feet
    los dedos del pie/ the toes (literally translationed -fingers of the foot)
    uñas del dedo del pie/ the toenails
    el talón/ the heel


    el hombre tiene un pene/the male has a penis
    la mujer tiene una vagina/ the woman has a vagina


    I left out butt,bum,rear end. You may fill in. That conversation is going on in another thread so I'm not sure what the polite name for it is.


    Let me know if I got any wrong.
    You may add to this list. Please keep it clean.

    Thanks

    Default Sorry no accents (I am not on my own computer)

    Anna,

    "Chin" is masculine el menton.

    You asked about "rear end"- There are many words. The most generic term I think is "nalgas". However, equally as common are: culo, pompis (mex.) and trasero.

    Also where did you find that word for nipples?

    More commonly for breasts is "los senos".

    Well darn it, I did knew them as los senos but I was afraid to write the wrong thing. My "vox" Spanish dictionary says pecho but is also referring to chicken breast.

    nipples, I couldn't remember so I used altaVista

    and yes I have heard nalgas for butt. But didn't think it was cool to call it culo.

    Anna,

    I just had to ask about that word for "nipples". It gave me good laugh though because I have never heard that word before. Nipples= pezones. You will hear another word too...

    Pechuga= chicken breast (you see this on menus)

    Oidos- refers to the inner part of you ear whereas orejas is the part that you see.

    When you are pointing to ears with a child and saying whats that the response would be orejas, but when you are ex plaining to a doctor that you might have an infection in your ear then you would be using oidos.
