10 False Friends - Similar but Funny

"False Friends" is a phrase used by linguistic and etymology experts to describe words or phrases which sound similar but have different meanings in other languages. Here are 10 examples:

#1. If you said you are embarrassed to someone in Spain they might think you are pregnant because the Spanish word embarazada means "pregnant".

#2. If you demanded something from a French person and used the word "demande" they will think it is only a request.

#3. A common mistake you probably already know is "Fag" which in Britain means "cigarette". Compared to the others here it doesn't seem that funny.

#4. In Dutch the words "Mama, that one, that one, that one!" is spelled "Mama, die, die die!" Not pronounced the same thankfully, but very amusing.

#5. If you are selling a perfume called "Evening Mist" you won't have much luck selling it in German-speaking countries like Germany, Austria or Switzerland where the word "mist" in a slang word for "feces".

#6. If your Spanish friend cannot hang out with you because they are "constipado", don't worry, they are not constipated. "Constipado" means sick in Spanish.

#7. Don't worry if someone in Spain gets on the phone and calls for the Bomberos. They're actually calling firefighters and not bombers.

#8. When you visit Germany remember to stay in a "bad hotel", because in German "bad" means bath. A "bad hotel" is actually a high class spa / hotel. A really famous place to go is the town of Baden Baden.

#9. Don't ever order order a "pepperoni pizza" in Germany - unless you really do like hot peppers on your pizza.

#10. Lastly if you get a chance to stay in a "Rathaus" in Germany do so because rathaus just means an upper class "town house". So you will be disappointed if you were hoping to see rats there.
