Hmmm, in czech we have word "Pár" for couple (it can also mean "Few"), too. What is origin of this word, please?
It's originally from the Latin 'par'
It's the same as English 'pair', which we had from Latin via French.
In Polish we also use "para" for a couple.
I feel like it's saying "bar" rather than par!
I don't disagree. The 'p' should sound like a 'p'.
My real question is why marriage-related things are learned before the past tense
Can this phrase also mean "we are a pair" in the sarcastic sense it is sometimes used in English. As in after two people do something silly, and one of them says, "Well, we are a pair, aren't we?"
