Question about English: ¿What does "to present someone" mean? Is it the same as to introduce someone to someone?
It's pretty much the same. Though it is more common in formal introductions.
To my knowledge, in english you only present objects, put them on show. Must be a viking thing... :-]
That is incorrect. You can use present for people as well. It is usually used for more formal introductions.
Yes, as in presenting them at a conference, speaking engagement, etc.
As an Italian speaker I've always been told that it is wrong to use the verb "to present (someone)" to mean "introduce someone to someone else" and we consider the verb "to present" a false friend of "presentare"
Why is it "præsenterer" and not "præsenter" ?
Because "præsenter" is not danish. :-)
Compare with the german "präsentieren" and the dutch "presenteren", they all use the same form.
