Yesterday on my 101.7 km cycling trip I read a sign about some bro work, then I realized that the Danish word "bro" means "bridge".

Bro work sounds like an interesting job though.

The Danish word "brand" means "fire".

"Brandfare" means "fire hazard".

("Fare" means "danger"/"hazard")

Danish has a really strange phonology. Just an observation. :P

The Danish word "save" means to saw.

This fact always bothered me when playing Pokémon back when I was 6-7 years old. I couldn't understand why you would "saw" the game. It didn't help that the other people I knew at the time also pronounced it in Danish as if we were actually sawing the game.

when i was like 5 - 7 and i would play a video game at my friend's house we came to the conclusion that 'retry' was /ritri/ (re-tree) when there was some message prompt, and had no idea what it meant, and we always had problems with it idk how that worked out because at some point we must have stopped trying

Kol, good to see that you English-speaking people have also had trouble with games.

Some other things:

- Another person many years ago came to the conclusion that the word "cancel" was pronounced "shangel" ("a" like in father)
- I didn't know what it meant when Pokémon said that the move I used couldn't be used against the enemy (it was resistant or something), this meant that I would keep using it over and over in some battles because I just thought it was failing. :-[
- There was a move in Pokémon called "drill peck", sort of similar to two danish words "drille" (tease) and "pik" (d*ck), so some person called the move "drillepik". Wut.

The Danish word "slap" means loose/lax/weak.

According to my dictionary, the Danish word "slaraffenland" means "land of milk and honey".

The Danish word "stem" means "to vote".

In Soviet Russia, communism stems from you.

The Danish word "skin" means "light", as in solskin = sunshine or mĺneskin = moonlight.
"Skinne" means "to shine" or "rail".

The Danish word "bog" means "book".

The Danish word "bug" means "stomach". (rarely used though, "mave" is more common)

"Jeg hugger din bug." would mean "I cut your stomach."

In Danish, multiple-word nouns have their words stuck together. For example "koordinattransformationsmatricen" means "the coordinate transformation matrix".

The Danish word "leg" means "play" (a noun as in children playing). The English word "game" in Danish would be "spil" though (computer game = computerspil).

But you can't leg a spil or spil a leg. Either you spil a spil (spiller et spil) or you leg a leg (leger en leg).
