Comodín

» by in: Nouns

This would be equivalent to a joker or wild card in English. It is not only used in games though. Sometimes a word can be a comodín. I recently heard a Spanish podcaster who used comodín when talking about a word that is used to mean whatever you want it to mean.

It is also the word used when doing a computer search and you need a wild card character. Often that is the asterisk (*), wild card or comodín.
