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

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