Our ability to communicate with each other through words is what separates us from animals. Different languages often borrow words from each other. Just because it’s the same word, it doesn’t mean that it’ll have the same meaning in all the languages. That is what provides these languages that extra bit of colloquial flavor – particular ideas featured behind particular words. 

We’ve compiled a list of English words that might have a different meaning in some other language.

Do you know any other English word that has a different meaning in another language? Do let us know in the comment section.
