How Cognate are You in Spanish?



bigmama60Bigmama60 on 10/21/2007

HowCognateareYouinSpanish Photo Words are fascinating. A cognate is a term used to express the same word in two or more languages. Some cognates are Spanish words which resemble words in English. For example, "altar" is spelled the same in both languages, but do they have the same meaning? Yes, they do. They both refer to a shrine, although altar in Spanish can also take on the meaning of high or altitude (altar can be both types of cognate).

A false cognate on the other hand, is a word that looks the same or almost the same, is spelled the same or nearly the same in two or more languages, but does not have the same meaning. The Spanish "exito" looks similar to the English word “excite” in spelling; however, in Spanish it means "success". Be careful - false cognates may cause you humiliation and make you feel very foolish.

In this quiz, the false cognate will be in quotation marks. Have fun, and don’t forget to rate the quiz.

Muchas gracias!

Not a great quiz, but not the worst either. The questions were just a bit congested and lengthy and the answers were a bit confusing/misleading. Just my opinion though!!
