Words with no direct translation: Partygoer / Convidado de uma festa

Post by Kangas on Thu Oct 29, 2015 10:54 am

English/Inglês
Partygoer/party-goer

Portuguese/Português
Convidado de uma festa

Explanation/Explicação
Every language has its own individuality and of course the culture of the countries where it’s spoken have a great influence in the way it evolves. In the English language we tend to create verbs and nouns for certain actions or people that you can hardly find a direct translation in any other language.

This weeks’s word is “partygoer”.  This word has no direct translation in Portuguese. In Portugal you use to word “convidado” (guest) to describe all types of guests, including those in a party.
