Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

So, something like the "social engineering" thing where someone infiltrates a company by, i dunno, holding a clipboard and saying they're from management?

Hmm, some sort of scandal?
If someone or some organization tried to carry out an act of X, it could cause a scandal for them if people found out about it.
hmmmmmmmmmmm

Something like "embezzlement"? Although you said more "business" than "finance"....

Is it an illegal act?

Ok cool: Something *bad* but not bankruptcy...

“bad” as in “sinister” more than just “unfortunate”.
Something malevolent that can happen to a business, oooooh...
Very appropriate for the time of year :P

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Would you say this was something that could happen *to* a business, or something that a business might itself *do*? Hmm… I think it would be most helpful to think of it as something that could happen to a business. A business itself could do this, theoretically, but it would be doing it to another ...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

a "General Strike"? [cross] I wouldn't translate the phrase with an indefinite article; "an act/instance of X" would sound better. There are two English words I have in mind as translations of empresarial , both of which are adjectives that I'd say are close to "business". Would you say this was so...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Haha, I'm afraid not. When I say the meaning has shifted very far, I mean very far. That is to say, I think it would be easier to look at cognates in natural languages than to try to guess how the meaning may have logically shifted from gibbus . Haha, okay [:D] Similar meaning to English gibbous ?

The meaning of the first word is very far from the meaning of "gibbus" in Latin.
