Unscrambling a Word in Spanish

  1. Feb 3, 2007 #1
    I have been staring at this word for a bit, and I can't seem to unscramble it as of yet. It is in Spanish and is supposed to be an object that one can find in a university.

    rpfoearso

    I am not sure if it is in the plural form. I think I have not been able to unscramble it as quickly since there are no i's in the word.

    Any help is appreciated, and, hopefully, this is the correct forum to post such a question.

    Thanks.

    I've moved this to General Discussion where it's more likely to get answered.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it is (I've not learnt spanish for about 10 years, but I think professor is "profesor")

    However, my guess is that "profesora" is a female professor.

    It might not be the only version of professor, but seems to be in use. Spanish has many dialects. Could be the person that made the word scramble doesn't know how to spell either. :biggrin:

    You're right, Profesora seems to be popular, that might be it. Geeze, I've been away from Texas for too long.

    Thanks. It is la profesora. I feel so foolish at not getting it immediately! T-T One of my first thoughts was that it was el "profesor," which is the masculine form, but I discarded that idea rather quickly since it did not match the number of letters that was given.
