Mascara en Baja?


Out of boredom, I looked for the term for "mask" in Spanish. From what I found, it seems that a full mask is mascara and the surgical type that are part of the current dress code is called mascarilla.

From those who are riding out this epidemic in Baja, what is the term being used where you are? Also, what are any other common terms being used for items or issues associated with this plague?

Latin roots help


I am high jacking my own thread now, but I wish I had spent more time learning Latin root words, they connect so many words in other languages.

For instance, I was able to remember the Spanish work for deer Venado by associating it with Venison.

If anyone wants to continue the highjack with word association, feel free!

Definitely "cubreboca" in Baja.

Mascara means "mask" but is more appropriately used in reference to a complete face covering or disguise, as in a Halloween mask.

Interestingly enough, the exact same word "mascara" is used in the United States for cosmetics that 'hide/disguise' your natural face .....

In the interests of purity and truth,

"máscara requires an accent mark;



Exactly right !

Just can not figure out how to type an accent mark on a Chromebook. Any help out there?

(On my Windows laptop it is easy. Just use the International keyboard)

(And I do not need to know about the Control characters/ASCII code numbers. They do not work on a Chromebook, either)

And I can think of no one more eminently qualified to do so! :lol:

But returning to the original topic, this might help (back it down to speed of 75% if it overruns you):




This video demonstrates that "cubrebocas" is only half correct. One should "cubrenariz" as well. :)

Yeah, I'm on a Chromebook right now; you can go into the keyboard settings and set it up with the U.S. International keyboard which creates dead key behavior for accents and ñ just like in Windows. On mine it's Settings -> Advanced -> Languages and Input -> Input Method.

That layout also gives you inverted punctuation ¿¡!? with the right ALT key plus the question or exclamation key.

I haven't used the standard U.S. keyboard map for probably 15 years and don't miss it one little bit.


Got it! Thanks for the hint!
