Rabbit

“Rabbit” (conejo) you may know. Rabbits live in a burrow (conejera) and many rabbits live in a “rabbit warren” (madriguera de conejos). 

You can also say that a place is a “rabbit warren”, meaning that there are a lot of narrow streets where you could easily get lost.

Rabbit is also a verb, “to rabbit on”. It is a regular verb. If someone rabbits on, he is talking incessantly (sin cesar) and for too long. Some examples:

  • • Mr. Corbyn is always rabbiting on about Brexit (…siempre está hablando sin parar sobre Brexit).
  • • The student rabbitted (…hablò hasta por los codos…) on about the need to raise taxes.
