8 Words You'll Fear To Use If You Know What They Mean In Other Countries
The dictionary is filled with strange and wonderful words that are cruelly underused in other languages. Some words are so hilarious that you would like to use them every now and then but, beware; you might hurt someone's emotion by those words. Here are a few instances where other languages have found the right word and English simply falls speechless.
Few of them are hilarious, and I bet you will think twice before you use it next time.
1) 'Vader,' I know as soon as we hear this word we get caught in the memory of Star Wars.
Unfortunately, Dutch people never get caught in such kind of memory it is because in Dutch it means 'Father'.
2) Whenever you get to Poland think twice before saying "NO."
...because it means the other way round in polish.
3) I swear I'll never fall in love with a Swedish or in that case never ask him for a kiss as well. Why?
...because 'KISS' is the Swedish word for 'Pee.' Yuck!
4) WOW, never thought, asking for a gift could be scary.
Gift means 'Poison' in German. Lol!
5) If your name if 'Gary,' then you're quite in trouble. Why?
...because it sounds like 'geri' which means diarrhea in Japanese. Hahaha!
6) Hammer, well it is a very common word and basically a backyard tool but...
Don't get surprised when a German says 'der hammer,' it means that you're really cool and awesome.
7) It is such a beautiful sight to 'Mist' early in the morning but...
...sadly Germans use it for 'Manure.'
8) 'Preservative' and I warn you never ever use this word in Russia, not even in your wildest dreams.
As preservative means condom and using this word openly is an offense.
