词源(Etymology)

Calque of French faux-ami, from the longer phrase faux amis du traducteur (false friends of a translator), first used by Maxime Kœssler and Jules Derocquigny in 1928 in their book Les Faux Amis ou les trahisons du vocabulaire anglais (False Friends, or the Pitfalls of the English Vocabulary).[1]

发音(Pronunciation)

Examples
  • The Spanish embarazado (pregnant) and English embarrassed.
  • The Chinese 手紙手纸 (shǒuzhǐ, “toilet paper”) and Japanese 手紙 (letter), both of which are composed of the same characters.
  • The Italian triviale (vulgar) and English trivial. The two words are cognate through the Latin root trivium (crossroads).
