Spanish Noun: Dolor

Spanish Noun: Dolor

Pronunciation: Doh-lohr

Translation: Pain

Function: Noun

Sometimes it is very important to get across your feelings, especially when you have to do it in a foreign language, and it is about some pain you are feeling. It is a good thing to know if you need to tell a foreign doctor.

You should know how to convey at least three different intensities, as in ‘dolor’ [pain], ‘molestia’ [bothersome,] and ‘sensación’ [feel], all three going from a high to a low discomfort. They all accept to be qualified with ‘intenso’ [intense] or ‘leve’ [mild], in case you want to emphasize.

Example:

Tengo una molestia en la pierna

Translation:

I have a bothersome pain in my leg
