Favorite words of the day (Dec 25, 2012)

English: avidity, glissade
Spanish: llevarse

From time to time, I will post my favorite word of the day.  Part of it is my personal record, part of it is my view on programming.  Most capable programmer I know actually know multiple languages and can discern differences between them.

More importantly, you would find the same word can mean differently in two languages.  Think false cognates such as "actualmente" (lately) and "actually" (really).

So if you have issues of differentiating usage of keywords in different programming languages. (Think "static".)  Then learning a different real language will be a way to help you.
