Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

It seems like the general convention has been to ask one question per post. There's no rule against asking more, but it might be better to not ask too many questions at once so that other people also have a fair shot. Ah, I see - that makes sense.

How many questions can we ask per post?

Is there an informal rule about getting one answer at a time?

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Uh… given that, and looking at your earlier hint, is it "to confuse the issue"? I'm almost certain I've heard that, although it's not in my personal "repertoire" of phrases, so to speak. Correct! [:D] The central meaning of broðiar is "to blur, to make foggy" and thus "to confuse sth from sth else"...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

OK, so, taking that as a "no" Sorry, that was me being annoyingly elliptic: my intent was to communicate "Nobody has asked whether broðiar here means to confuse (sth for another thing), but if they did, I would answer yes ." So yes, broðiar here means "to confuse something for something else".

Hmm… then, might I ask what "to put (someone) off (something) jam" means? I don't believe I've heard that expression before.
Oh! those are two different definitions [:D]

I put him off strawberries for life
The printer jammed

However, neither of those two is the relevant definition.
