A place to share Funny Translations.
My mum is Filipino, and she told us that in Filipino, to call someone little brother, you say "dong", and to call someone little sister, you say, "dai". Now the rest of my family remembers it as, "if you get a dong on the head, you will dai!"
Someone in my Italian class said "sono eccitante", meaning to say "I am excited", but our teacher erupted in laughter because "eccitante" is used to say someone is "aroused" rather than "enthusiastic" or "overjoyed".
In my language (the one I'm creating), there are 18 personal pronouns:
Mi, Ti, Li, Mis, Tis, Lis, Ma, Ta, La, Mas, Tas, Las, Mo, To, Lo, Mos, Tos ans Los. The first 3 are I, you and he, all singular and masculine. The second set of 3 means us, you and them, all plural and masculine. The pronouns with "a" are the same, but feminine. Finally, the pronouns with "o" refers to someone who doesn't want his/her gender to be known, if undercover or if transsexual (of course, in that case, they decide if they want to be Mi, Ma or Mo). Also, the plural neutral (Mos, Tos and Los) are used when the group reffered to has guys and girls in it.
P.S.: I need a name for my language, any ideas?
