The most singsong sentence I've got here!
Yeah. Thanks for saying that! Now I can't stop hitting the talk button!
Is it necessary to say it in that upbeat tone demonstrated by the voice? :P
Not really... :p
Cool, garderob reminds me of the italian "guardaroba"
Most likely related, as we borrowed the word from French.
Which is "garde-robe". But in french it's more often used to speak about the whole lot of clothes we have, than the furniture where we stock them.
Interestingly, Russian гардероб (garderob) is used for both more or less equally often.
As a native portuguese speaker it's an easy word to remember, since we say "guarda-roupa"
I was just about to say that, was really happy how similar this was to the Portuguese word, I will remember this one easily! (:
And my hovercraft is full of eels.
You beat me by 3 days! I'll just have to do it in (hopefully) Swedish instead...
Min svävfarkost är full av ål!
Can « av » be replaced with « med »?
We don't say closet in Wales, we say wardrobe. Should be accepted really..
It does work with wardrobe now.
Does "garderob"(wardrobe) here indicate a piece of furniture or the 'collection' of clothes? It can mean either in English.
Can mean either, but preferrably the piece of furniture or the room.
Closet is American cupboard in English, so both should be accepted
agreed. Nobody uses the word 'closet' in England
Garderobe in English is used for a medieval lavatory and in English closet tends to be a toildt esp when preceded by water or earth. The use as wardrobe is American.
I thought that 'full' was only used for when something is full of a liquid?
No, not necessarily. It’s used pretty much as English full except that it also means ”drunk” and it doesn’t mean ”having eaten with satisfaction”.
Why is wardrobe not accepted?
We actually do accept that. Do you remember the full phrase you put?
Someone speaking German here? Klosett really means a different thing ...;-)
English "closet" originally meant a private room or enclosure, for instance where a lady would do her dressing and grooming. Both the modern English meaning and the modern German Klosett are derived from there.
...and you better don't put your clothes in ...
Doesn't "wardrobe" fit better here?
Yay! Another new word for me! O.K., so, if 'garderob' specifically refers to a clothes closet, what is the word for any other type of closet ?
