Confusable Words #6 Japanese English Extra Words
Here is a list of Japanese English two-word phrases which only need to be one word in English:
colour (but you can say ‘the color yellow’)
man (or ‘security guard’)
player (famous people are often referred to by family name only, or full name, but if you think the listener doesn’t know him, you can say ‘football player Kagawa’)
party A ‘wedding’ is the whole event – ceremony, reception and party… However, if you attend only one part of the wedding then yes, it is correct to say ‘wedding party’, ‘wedding reception’ or ‘wedding ceremony’.
I will add more later. If you have any ideas, please tell me.
