I just learned that "spendthift" refers to someone who spends money too freely. Before now, I thought it meant the exact opposite ("frugal"), because I assumed it must mean something similar to "thrifty".

I don't think GamerGeek would approve of my use of words like dranken and aten or my tendency to drop just about every consonant I can realistically get away with dropping.

My dad has already helped me fix mistakes I made with the translation, and that's (sort of :P) taught me a few more new phrases in Malayalam! (OK, so not really words for the most part, and in fact, the last one is a whole sentence, and what I learned is what it actually means, but...)

...എന്നുള്ളത് പ്രസ്താവ്യമാണ് [jɛn̪n̪ʊɭˈɭəd̪ɯ prəsˈt̪aːʋjəmaːɳɯ] 'it should be stated that...'
അതിനൊരുങ്ങിയില്ല [əd̪ɪnoˈɾʊŋijɪlla] 'didn't attempt to do that'
ആട്ടിയെടുത്ത (വെളിച്ചെണ്ണ) [ˈaːʈijɛɖʊt̪a] ([ʋɛɭɪˈt͡ʃɛɳɳa]) 'commercially produced (coconut oil)'
തേങ്ങാപ്പാൽ പതഞ്ഞു പൊങ്ങുന്നതു് ഒരു കുഴമ്പു രൂപത്തിലാകുന്നതുമല്ലാതെ എണ്ണയായിത്തീരുകയില്ല. [t̪eːˈŋaːpaːl pəˈd̪əɲɯ poˈŋʊn̪n̪əd̪ɔɾu kɔˈɻəmbɯ ˈɾuːbət̪ɪlaːgʊn̪n̪əd̪əllaːd̪e jɛɳɳeˈjaːjt̪iːɾʊgejɪlla]. 'The coconut milk will only foam up into a thick liquid, not turn into oil.'
തകരപ്പെട്ടി [t̪əˈgəɾəpɛʈi] 'steel trunk'
തകര [t̪əˈgəɾa] 'can' (as in a tin can)

comulgar
combregar

Two different outcomes of Latin communicare. The first is Spanish, the second Catalan. And both are used to mean "take communion".
