VerbEdit

parir (first-person singular present paro, first-person singular preterite parí, past participle parido)

  1. (vulgar in some areas) to give birth
  2. to think up; imagine up
  3. to explain

Usage notesEdit

  • Parir is more commonly used in Spain, and is rarely used by Central- and South-Americans, as they believe parir is vulgar, in the sense that it is used to describe when animals give birth. Instead, they use the phrase "dar a luz", which means literally "to give to light."
