Perú, like in the wide variety of food that it offers, also has different regional accents. People in the Highland areas, people in the north, people in the south and people from the Jungle each have their own accent.
What are Spanish accent marks?
Welcome to our grammar lesson about Spanish accent marks (also called “tildes” ). Accent marks are these little marks we see on some Spanish words: ´ Only vowels can have accent marks. When they do, they look like this: á, é, í, ó, ú (or, when capitalized: Á, É, Í, Ó, Ú).
Only vowels can have accent marks. When they do, they look like this: á, é, í, ó, ú (or, when capitalized: Á, É, Í, Ó, Ú) In this lesson, we will learn the rules to know if a word needs an accent mark.
Why is there no accent mark on the “I” in some words?
– So no accent mark. – One vowel is weak, the other is strong. – We hear the word, and realize the stress of the whole word falls on the weak vowel of the two, “i”. So we can skip the rest of the process: we need an accent mark on the “i”. – One vowel is weak, the other is strong.
Why is Lima so important to Peru?
It is the largest city in the country and over eight million people call Lima home. The cold water of the Pacific Ocean brought by the Humboldt current, makes its water rich in plankton which supports a rich variety of fish and marine animals as well as birds who feed from the fish.
The reason Lima is so dry, despite its coastal position, is because the water that laps the shore is very cold. If the sea were warm, then moisture from the sea would evaporate into the air above it. The warmth would heat the air from below, causing humid air to rise.
Does it ever rain in Lima?
WRITER IN PERU If you visit Peru, you will likely hear someone say: “It never rains in Lima”—the nation’s capital. Shivering in the chilly, damp air, you may well wonder if that is so. LIMA is located in the great desert that runs along the Pacific Coast of South America—a region having one of the world’s most unusual climates.
Lima is located near the Pacific coast of South America, where a persistent strong current of very cold water comes north from the southern polar regions and is turning west here. This brings even colder water from the deep trench off of the west coast of South America to the surface. Therefore, the water near Lima is always cold.
The dryness of the coast has preserved mummies, ruins and pre-Columbian art such as textile and pottery made by these ancient pre-Inca civilizations that flourished in the coast of Peru. However, in some parts of the coast known as lomas the fog is so dense that water condenses enough to support the local vegetation.
