Hi, I just needed a moment to vent about some frustration I'm having.
I'm trying to find out how to say "glue" in Spanish. I always thought that "glue" was "pega" in Spanish because when my daughter went to her Spanish playgroup, the teacher had a container of Elmer's School glue labeled "PEGA." And I heard her say "pega" when referring to the glue.
So, I've been telling my kids that "pega" is the Spanish word for glue.
But when I looked up "glue" in a Spanish dictionary online recently, "pega" didn't show up. I remember watching an episode of "Handy Manny" and finding it interesting that Manny said "goma is the way we say glue in Spanish." I've seen "cola" and "pegamento" and the closest "pegue" as the meanings of "glue" in Spanish, too.
Which word is it?
