"Do you swallow?"

It appears I'm a 15 year old boy in the body of a 35 year old woman.

belgo No, I mean its meaning is fin, as in dorsal fin, the fin on a fish. Or flipper if you were talking about a seal.
Ala is wing in Spanish aleta is a noun meaning fin/flipper. There is no adjective for winged in Spanish, you would have to say with wings - con alas.
