Words At Play

Back in July I presented a list of 25 “false friends” – words that don’t mean what they look like they should mean.  Last time the words were French, Spanish and Italian.  This time they are Italian, German, and English – but English from an earlier time.  Once again you can find the answers on my Quiz Answers page.
