If you are more than a 3rd day student of Spanish, you certainly know that papel is the word for paper. But it also has another meaning that is quite interesting. It means role, as in, to play a role. Someone’s part in a play or set of actions is their papel.

I think of the words tarea and papel together. A person’s role (papel) is to accomplish their task (tarea).
