IT LOOKS LIKE ENGLISH BUT IT'S NOT-2
Hello again. I hope your day is going well,
Today we continue with more of those words and expressions in Spanish/Catalan that look like English, but aren't.
Consider the following expressions in Spanish/Catalan and their correct translations into English:
Span/Cat: Un smoking
English: A tuxedo
Span/Cat: Un master
English: A master's degree (M.A.). A two year degree after your "licenciatura".
Span/Cat: Los Rolling
English: The Stones
So English speakers do not say "I'm going to the Rollings concert" but rather "I'm going to the Stones concert".
I hope you find these as humorous as I do. :-)
Have a great day!
