Can "bluza" mean blouse (or some other shirt that's a bit more different than just a regular, off-the-rack thing that the average guy wears)?
Blouse is "bluzka"
Google translates bluza as hoodie into English and as блузка into Russian. But hoodie is not блузка!
"Bluza" means sweatshirt/hoodie and can mean sweater too, but the real translation of sweater is "sweter"
Fun fact: "μπλούζα" (blouza) is the Greek word for the same thing. mindblow
Even more mindblowing: in portuguese it is also the same. :P
And i wonder, how? HAUSHAUSHUAS
What the ❤❤❤❤ is a sweatshirt?
In the UK at least a sweatshirt is a jumper made from cotton, normally worn for sport. No need for swearing!
Calm down on your languge
i don't know but this is bluza http://www.urbanpatrol.pl/bluzy-cat-36.html
Its pretty much a big baggy jacket but without a zipper, usually made of a thick cottony material. They often have hoods or a big pocket in front but not always.
Maybe it's the same as t-shirt
Bluza is a "hoodie". Really? Is there an alternative?
In Spanish we have "blusa", for t-shirt and shirt in general although is not very commonly used.
Sweatshirt or sweat shirt?
I can't use blouse?
If i remember corrrctly, when i first started on Duolingo, blouse was accepted?
I don't remember it being accepted (although it doesn't prove that it wasn't), it's rather a false friend.
Interestingly, bab.la translates bluza as Jacket. Type blouse into bab.la and bluza is one of the answers
Nothing that Google Graphics shows me for "blouse" resembles "bluza". Online translation websites are... imperfect, to say the least.
Why is Bluza translated as sweatshirt when it actually means blouse but it wont accept shirt
Because "bluza" does not mean "blouse", that is "bluzka". It's a false friend.
Also, why "shirt"? o_O
"bluza" is something that you are not likely to wear directly on your body, but rather on another piece of clothing, usually a t-shirt.
T-shirt gave me an error... why?
Mostly because none of the words here means a t-shirt.
Sweatshirt ( American English ? ) is what I call...Jumper. I learnt something new today :-) . Thanks
