"To want a cake"
Translation:A dori un tort
" a dori= to wish", " a vrea= to want"...but... when you go to a store for ex, people might address you in a polite way asking what do you want to buy in a form that sounds like " what would you wish to buy?= ce a-ți dori să cumpărați?). If they ask " what do you want to buy?= ce vreți să cumpărați?" Even if it's the polite form from" ce vrei să cumperi?" it's still a bit rude...unwelcoming.
