|English term or phrase: Transparent word|
|What is a transparent word? I have to do an exercise and it says: Underline the transparents words from the following text.|
similar in form & meaning
In relation to translation, these are words that are similar in FORM & MEANING, unlike False Friends, which are similar in FORM only, but different in MEANING.
Example of a transparent word:
solidaridad = solidarity
transparente = transparent
Example of a false frind.
sensible (SP) = sensitive (ENG)
Note that sometimes words can be both at the same time, so context is important:
participación = participation, but also, in another context, could mean 'shares/shareholding'
