Vocabulário: False Friends

Muito Difícil

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Questão Muito Difícil de Inglês

In English, false friends are pairs of words from different languages that are similar in form but have different meanings. For example, the English word 'library' is not a place to buy books, as the Portuguese 'livraria', but a place to borrow them, as 'biblioteca' in Portuguese. This phenomenon can cause confusion and misunderstandings in language learning and translation. Read the following excerpt from a short story and answer the questions below: 'As she walked through the vast corridors of the college, she couldn't help but notice the 'fabric' of history embedded in the walls. Each brick seemed to tell a story, and she felt like a 'craftsman' putting together the pieces of an ancient puzzle.' Based on the context provided, identify and explain the meaning of the false friends 'fabric' and 'craftsman' as they are used in the story, providing the correct translation of the words in Portuguese. Additionally, discuss the potential consequences of misinterpreting these words in a different context, such as a professional translation or a language learning exercise.

False friends are pairs of words from two different languages that seem to be cognates, but have different meanings. In English, the word 'actual' means 'real' or 'existing in fact' while in Portuguese, 'atual' refers to something 'current' or 'up-to-date'. Similarly, 'sympathy' in English is 'compassion or understanding for someone in need' whereas 'simpatia' in Portuguese is 'friendliness or an affinity with someone or something'. Identify and explain a pair of false friends between English and another language of your choice, and provide examples of how these words are used in context, illustrating their differences in meaning. Discuss the potential consequences of misusing these words in a real-world scenario, considering cultural, social, or professional contexts.

Modal verbs are a unique subset of English verbs that express necessity, possibility, permission, ability, and obligation. They are often used to modify other verbs, and each has its own nuances and rules for usage. Modal verbs can be complex because their meanings can change based on context, and they don't usually inflect for tense or person. Consider the following examples: 'You should study harder for the exams.' ('Should' implies a recommendation or advice.) 'She can play the piano.' ('Can' reflects ability.) 'Students may not leave the classroom until the bell rings.' ('May' expresses permission or possibility.) Based on your understanding of modal verbs, analyze the role and meaning of two different modal verbs in the sentences provided. Explain how changing the modal verb in each sentence might alter the meaning or appropriateness in a given context.
