Linguistics has a name for foreign words that seem to be similar to known words, but are not; they’re called „false friends„.
In Czech, one of the major false friends is „Sympathetic„. The English word translates to, soucitný, or chapající. If I am sympathetic, I feel pity or fellowship with the afflicted individual.
The Czech term, Sympatický means something quite different. A person who is sympatický is just likable or pleasant to be around. But they’re not going to offer you a shoulder to cry on when you need one. Just like a false friend.
Poznámka: nemělo by to být … A person who is sympatická.. ?
