remember

[rɪ'membǝ(r)]

  1. VT

    1. (=recall) [+ person, fact, promise] acordarse de, recordar

    2. (=bear in mind) recordar, tener presente

    3. (=not forget) acordarse de

    4. (=commemorate) recordar

    5. (with wishes)

  2. VI

    1. (=recall) acordarse, recordar

    2. (=not forget) acordarse

      REMEMBER

      "acordarse de" or "recordar"?

      ► Both acordarse de and recordar can be used to translate to remember (used transitively), provided the object of remember is not another verb. Recordar is becoming less common, however, in everyday informal contexts:

      Do you remember where he lives? ¿Te acuerdas de dónde vive?

      ¿Recuerdas dónde vive?

      ► Use acordarse de + ((infinitive)) to translate to remember to + ((verb)):

      Did you remember to close the door? ¿Te acordaste de cerrar la puerta?

      NOTE: Don't use recordar for remembering to do sth.

      ► Use recordar + ((perfect infinitive/clause)) or acordarse de + ((clause)) to translate to remember + ((-ing)):

      I remember closing the door Recuerdo haber cerrado or Recuerdo que cerré or Me acuerdo de que cerré la puerta

      Recordar also translates remind:

      I must remind Richard to pay the rent Tengo que recordarle a Richard que pague el alquiler

      For further uses and examples, see main entry

You remember me from the other day.

I don't remember what they were about, but the dialogue was sluggish and labored, as if everyone were talking with paralyzed lips and mouths filled with wet sand.
No recuerdo de qué trataban, pero el diálogo era repetitivo y lento, como si todo el mundo estuviera hablando con labios paralizados y bocas llenas de arena húmeda.
