Sendos is a adjective whose etymology takes us to the Latin word sing them. The term is used in the plural to refer to one for each of a pair or group of objects, individuals, facts, etc., according to the meaning detailed by the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE ).
In other words, the concept of two refers to what is one for each of the things indicated . The notion is always used in plural and should not be confused with the idea from both of them (two things, elements or subjects).
For example: "The two companies launched two products based on the superhero movie", "The three workers' centrals submitted two complaints to the Ministry of Labor of the Nation", "The men's basketball team and their women's pair won two round of 16 matches and qualified for the next round of the continental tournament".
In the first example, there are two Business that launched certain products: that is, each of the companies launched their own product. Something similar happens with the protests of the workers' centrals (each central presented its own protest) and with the triumphs of the basketball or basketball teams (the men's team won their match and the women's team won theirs).
As you can see, if instead of both the adjective both had been used, the meaning of the expressions would not be the same . If it is noted that "Two companies launched both products ...", it would be indicating that the two companies launched the same products, and not that each one launched its own product .
In the daily press you can find numerous examples of the use of the term two that now concerns us. Thus, for example, it is common for sports media to establish headlines such as the following: "Tennis players Rafa Nadal and Garbiñe Muguraza got two trophies that will increase the wide Spanish record in this sports discipline."
More examples regarding the use of that word in the mass media could be the following:
- "Two workers have died in two forest fires in recent hours."
- “Three of the best photographers in the country have submitted two works to the prestigious international event”.
But not only that. This term is also sometimes used as a synonym for "great," "imposing," and even "huge." An example of this would be prayers like these: "He took two pitchers of beer to end the night" or "He gave his girlfriend two kisses that managed to grab everyone's attention." In either of these two cases, it must be said that although the use of that word with that meaning is usually used, it is not correct to do so.
In the same way, it should not be overlooked that both are also a word that can be used with another meaning. In particular, it can be used in the same way with the meaning of “constants” and “frequent”. A clear example of this use is the following example: "The employee has presented two complaint documents regarding the treatment received by one of his bosses."
