speaking of reading

I was surprised to find the word embarassed translated as embarasado while I was reading Harry Potter. Ron Weasley was pregnant? Wow, that adds a whole new layer of meaning to the story.

I was also surprised to see a word I had previously taught my students was gibberish: ello. Apparently, in some regional dialects, ello can be used as the object of a preposition. Who knew?
