ciekawe :) Dec 9, 2013

A to ciekawe

W Hiszpanii "tata" oznacza nianię opiekującą się dziećmi.
Przy okazji zajrzałam do "Słownika języka hiszpańskiego" wyd. przez Hiszpańską Akademię Królewską i - o dziwo - dowiedziałam się, że w niektórych krajach latynoamerykańskich termin "tata" to pieszczotliwe określenie ojca.

Tata means father/dad/Jesus in Kichwa and Quechua as well
I've also heard taita and tayta.

but in French Dec 10, 2013

it means "auntie"... or gay, if you prefer!
That is quite embarrassing when my son calls his father this way!
