Spanish translation:A good dictionary
Explanation:
13 questions like this a day seems excessive to me. You need a Spanish-English dictionary and the best one I know for all purpose language is The Oxford Spanish Dictionary (it's Sp-Eng., Eng-Sp); it is hard-bound, thumb indexed and very contemporary, containing many new words and giving good examples of usage in both languages. If it's out of your price range, you'll find any decent Spanish-English dictionary--even a paperback--will contain the words you've asked about. Good luck and keep communicating!
