    Default Todo el día tiene sueño

    Sleepiness all day ? is this translation correct ?




    Deseo de dormir todo el día. - Todo el día tiene sueño.

    What is the different meaning of both sentences ? Do they both mean "Sleepiness all day" ?


    Danke,
    Katja

    I think the medical term for sleepiness is "somnolencia".

    I think your first translation is not bad though.

    You could also say "suffering from fatigue".

    Siento una constante somnolencia.
    AS veronica said before, the medical term is somnolencia.

    If you are looking a medical term for sleepiness that one is somnolence, which means somnolencia in spanish.
    And you two sentences are correct becuase the first one means that you want to sleep all day and the other one that someone wants to sleep all day. Hence both have somnolence
