To ensure it is a term that can come from different etymological roots and, therefore, have different meanings. The first meanings mentioned in the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) come from the Latin word I will watch and are associated with the surveillance that a person performs.
In this sense, it can be said that watching consists of carrying out a guard to accompany a deceased, look after someone who is sick or to protect a property. The verb can also refer to performing an activity at night, in the time that is usually allocated to sleep.
For example: “We are going to watch grandfather in a funeral home downtown”, “Do not worry, I will watch over you during your hospitalization”, “I think the chemistry test will keep me awake all night: I still have five chapters of the book to read”.
Caring for a deceased is one of the most difficult moments in anyone’s life, as they have to say goodbye to a loved one. Despite being something so intimate, the usual thing is to have the support and visit of friends, family and acquaintances who want to show their condolences as a sign of affection.
Precisely those citizens should know that there is a protocol when it comes to watching over these cases. It is a series of guidelines that will allow them to act correctly and that they cannot become heavy or annoying:
-They should not extend their stay with the relatives of the deceased too long because, although they appreciate the visits, they are suffering and also need to rest.
-When they are going to leave, it is important that they do so when there are more visits, that is, that they do not leave those people alone.
-You should avoid “speeches” or hackneyed phrases to give condolences. With gestures and presence is more than enough.
-When it comes to dressing to go to the wake, those who are not direct relatives of the deceased can go as they wish. Of course, it is recommended that you choose to wear dark clothes.
-Fundamental is to avoid situations that are not comfortable for people who fire their loved one. We are referring to the fact that whoever attends the wake does not spend time talking to everyone, making jokes, gossiping …
The concept of watching can also be derived from velāre, which in turn has its origin in velum (“veil”). In this case, the verb refers to cover something or, in the field of photography, to eliminate an image from the paper or the plate due to the improper use of the light: “Don’t remove the roll! You can watch the photos we take “.
It is known as a veil, on the other hand, posterior third of palate. The point of articulation is the space where the phonation takes place: the velar articulation pointIn this framework, it is located in the dorsal sector of the palate.
For phonetics, a velar sound is one characterized by an articulation that occurs when the soft palate and the back of the tongue come into contact or get closer. The velar consonant is a letter that is pronounced with this sound.
Examples of velar sounds in Spanish are, for example, the “g” in the word cat, the “n” in the term orange or even the “g” in the noun people.
