    Okuri-okami: Japanese for a man who feigns thoughtfulness by offering to see a girl home only to try to molest her once he gets in the door - literally, a "see-you-home wolf"

    This describes my personality perfectly.

    "Stroitel: Russian for a man who likes to have sex with two women at the same time."


    I thought the word for that was "man".

    `pleur` also means rain in French. So when you say you`re crying, it`s the same as saying your eyes are raining. :)

    ...Austrian IS a language...

    Well...Austrian German is a form of German nationalized in Austria. To call it it`s own language is problematic in my mind. It`s just another variety of the same language.

    Opie: Lionhart got one with Defenestrate. "To throw out of a window".

    Only reasons I know what it means are:
    1) Bash quote calling the blue screen of death a defenestration. (Think about it).
    2) Defenestrating Sphere. A spell in DnD.

    uhm... no
    rain is pluie
    also, I`m french and I`ve never used those words before. It must be weird expressions that are in the dictionnary but that no one actually uses

    Technically not true, it IS in usage in English but only cause English is a bastard language (in its literal sense, born of many parents). `Defenestrate` is Greek `de` remove, French `fenetre` window, and Latin suffix `trate` action of.

    What a crock of poo.

    There is no such word as `Zabra` in Malay in any slang or dialects whatsoever, so the phrase `Pisan zabra` is bullpoo. I feel like slapping the writer of that stupid book.

    However, `buaya darat` does literally mean land crocodile, but it`s more of a metaphor than anything else. Like `dickhead`.

    I suppose that`s fair lion.
    Although that also makes defenestrate the perfect example of an English word. 3 languages all combined to make a single word.

    I think where they say `Austrian` they mean that it`s a phrase that`s used in Austria - it`s certainly not one I have heard here in Germany.

    How about Head over Heals? Why is it head over heals. I mean, I know it`s supposed to mean you`re tumbling, or in a fall, or something, but aren`t we SUPPOSED to be head over heals? Isn`t that our normal, upright condition?

    V `Tards`. Right. Because disproving something that is wrong is retarded.

    I don`t need to look in wikipedia for my case, because I very damned well SPEAK the language, and what`s being stated in the article is a downright lie.

    Sorry, couldn`t resist the troll. Insults against my culture is a touchy button to push.

    In Switzerland we have a phrase "Chasch mer i d`Schue blaase!", meaning "Go to hell!" The exact translation would be "You can blow into my shoes".

    The last French phrase isn`t quite right. It just means to have a zero, and mentions nothing about testicles. However, considering it is an idiom that I have not heard of before, perhaps in France the testicles bit is implied.
