Dear Lissi, I should let Dilsia, our native Spanish-speaker, who now writes so well in English, in my opinion, that you'd never know it's her second language, answer this for you. Also, probably Pratik who is multi-lingual, or Gustavo, or is it Kellie? But I'll take a stab. "Sala," I know, is room. "Sol" is sun. My Spanish-English dictionary says "solar" as a noun is "lot, plot of ground, ancestral mansion, manor." However, the verb solar means to pave, to floor, or,t sole, as shoes. SO sola could be third person singular form of the verb--maybe; I think my dictionary said it wa an irregular verb, so that might be wong. Th letter c doesn't have a tilde, but it does have a cedilla under the c to make it soft (sound like s). The cedilla is like a tiny comma attached to the bottom of the c. I hope in my presumption, Dilsia and Pratik and Kellie, I haven't gone too far wrong.
