    Qué significa esta frase en la oración, "Las civilizaciones se caracterizan por el uso de la coa, o palo plantador." He buscado por el internet, pero tal vez mi profesor se haya equivocado?

    Hola ComoUnCocodrilo!

    La coa es un palo delgado que usan los agricultores, sobre todo los que cultivan maíz, para hacer un hoyo profundo en la tierra.

    Espero haberte ayudado! :)

    ¿Cómo traducirían al inglés esta palabra, "coa"? Could it be something like "sowing stick"?

    My dictionary defines it as "long-handled narrow spade" or "pointed stick for sowing seed" so it doesn't seem there is a one-word translation in English.

    I like "pointed stick for sowing seed", though! Thanks, Fenoxielo!

    I found sowing stick in modern specialized pages and dibbling stick in reference to a book about ancient civilizations. Greetings!
