Translate the word above into your language.


Recommended Posts

I've seen a similar thread in other forum, but not here, I think. It seems fun for non-native English speakers, but English-speaking people who know more than one language shall feel welcome, too. :D the rule is simple: one person posts an English word, the person below translates it into their native language/another language they speak, and posts their own word. Please have fun :D

 

I'm going to start: cat.

samolot (which incidentally is a Polish neologism, literally meaning "flies on it own". See, Polish, you can do this. You don't have to borrow words left and right...)

goat

Now I know you may not believe this but was genuinely about to write goat . I changed it to aeroplane only because I thought 2 animals in a row might not be right . Random info here but thought I would mention it

Grão de café (which would be "bean of coffee" more then "coffee bean", but in portuguese you need to use a preposition to make sense)
