A to ciekaweicon_smile.gif

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. icon_eek.gifhttp://lema.rae.es/drae/?val=tata

Pozdrawiam,

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