Spanish Salutation:Querida

Spanish Salutation:Querida

Pronunciation:Keh-ree-dah

Translation:Dear (female), mistress

Function:Salutation

Querida has several connotations, some of them very different from one another: it is used frequently as an introduction in personal letters written to female members of the family, i.e. ‘Querida madre’ [Dear mother], but when used as a noun, it means “mistress”.

Querida’ (or masculine Querido) can also be used in the middle of the sentence, just as any other adjective: ‘Es una muy querida amiga’ [She is a very dear friend] “Siempre fue un hijo muy querido” [He was always a very beloved son]

Example:Querida doña Olga Ruiz

Translation:Dear Mrs. Olga Ruiz
