La palabra del día: Subsanar

Verb. This term as the same root of sanar, sano: to heal, healthy. It is almost exclusively used in a legal context and it has two different meanings somehow related: 1. To repair or remedy a defect. E.g.: El problema de los uniformes para criollos van a Tokio se subsanó: The problem of uniforms for Dominican athlets going to Tokyo was corrected. 2. To compensate a damage. E.g.: Siempre resulta más barato evitar o prevenir el fraude que intentar subsanar los daños a posteriori y a un elevado coste: It is always cheaper to avoid or prevent fraud than it is to attempt, after the event and at great expense, to put things right.
In both cases the noun is la subsanación. dc
