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?
In Finnish, all month names are just words (usually nature related) followed by the word "kuu", meaning moon, but could also refer to a month because the Finnish word for month is kuukausi, which literally means moon season, but not as in the seasons that there are 4 of in a year, those are called vuodenajat, which literally means times of the year.
Also, the words "kuusi palaa" have like 9 meanings (there are pictures online explaining all the meanings). But basically "kuusi" could mean six, it could mean spruce and it could also mean your moon (as in kuu and then -si at the end, meaning your). But anyway, the Finnish word for December is joulukuu, which literally means Christmas moon. But then the Finnish word for Christmas tree is joulukuusi. But it could also mean your December.
The Finnish word for January is tammikuu, which literally means oak moon. And the word for your January is tammikuusi, which is basically just 2 tree species (oak spruce).
