What's the difference between a matador and a toreador?
The words get used almost as synonyms in English, but are they also synonymous in Spanish?
A matador is the man on foot who kills the bull. This man is the central bullfighter who must kill the bull.
A toreador is a mounted bull fighter. He actively participates in the fight but does not kill the bull.
Yes, what Reena said . You can keep the words straight by thinking about the etymology. "Matador" comes from "matar" (to kill). "Torear" is more like "to goad."
