Ejemplo: grupos locales

Razón: We know that adjectives usually follow nouns in Spanish, so we can assume that ‘grupos locales’ means  ‘local groups’.

Ejemplojóvenes

Razón: We can’t really connect this word to anything.  We’ll just have to skip over the word ‘jóvenes’ and concentrate on finding words we can understand.
