False Friends as far as the Eye can see!

Wow! Now that's a pretty comprehensive list my blogger friend and de facto co-blogger Philipp just alerted me to: The Wikipedia List_of_false_friends. Not only does it cover German, but a host of other languages, too, mostly European ones, though. Go check it out and find for yourself, how many spellings seem to indicate semantic equivalence...

Also, don't miss to contribute to Philipp's blog. For a discussion of above link, see his entry.
