FALSE FRIEND: ADVERTISEMENT: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today we continue with our series of Daily Vitamins about false friends.

Today's word is: Advertisement

It means: a notice, picture or film telling people about a product, job or service; a paid public promotion of some product or service.

Translation: anuncio

This word has no relation to the Spanish words advertencia. Advertencia would be translated to English as warning.

Example 1:
BMW has some of the most creative advertisements on TV.

Example 2:
The government issued travel warnings due to the very severe weather.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.

I'll see you tomorrow.
