estifito:

I know I’ve mentioned the whole “Russians (and other Slavs) use a word for Germans (немецкий) that derives from the word for ‘mute’” thing before…

But today, I found something fun. The Spanish word “algarabía”, which means something along the lines of “gibberish”, comes from the Arabic word “العربية”, (al-3arabiyya, “Arabic”).

I love these “we can’t understand you” derivations
