How is it that porte can mean wear, or carry? It seems that the French change the meaning of the word to suit themselves in whatever situation they find themselves! This is terribly confusing. No offence to anybody French here.
Thank you for your clarification Sitesurf. In some ways I think French is less complicated than English, so I can see the positives too. I hope I haven't offended you or anyone else. I will persevere with my French lessons.
