False Friends“ sind Wörter, die sehr häufig verwechselt werden. Durch die Verwechslung kann es oft zu Missverständnissen kommen. Als falschen Freund bezeichnet man ein Paar aus einem fremdsprachigen Wort und einem Wort der Muttersprache. Diese ähneln sich in der Aussprache oder in der Schrift, haben aber vollkommen unterschiedliche Bedeutungen.

„Kann ich ein Steak bekommen?“ -> „Can I become a steak?“ FALSE
(become=False Friend) „Can I get a steak?” RIGHT

In der Zeit der Projektwoche erarbeiteten wir uns ein Gespräch in dem False Friends auftraten.

One young pair meet an old pair. The young pair comes from England and the old pair comes from Germany-Dresden.
