One- "Latin culture" includes Spain Italy and France. Their language all comes from latin, and are very similar.
Two - the meaning is the same, as I explained.
-Three- If the word is pronounced exactly the same, and has exactly the same meaning, and comes from the same base language, maybe it could have been
a coincidence, but the chances are slim. That does not invalidate the fact that the word already exists.
-Four- The anal comment was necessary? Really?
To that, I answer "caca"- which exists both in spanish and french, because it comes from latin.
1: Latino /hispanic culture is slightly different than latin culture. yes Spanish is a romance language with a common latin root as in all our
languages.... BUT this term is commonly used as an expression in hispanic culture with synonyms as I pointed out like "pow", "woosh", or "bam".
2:FOI in French is akin to faith. This word though sounding similar is not related to faith. It is more akin to a "can do" attitude, or as the man put
it, an "extra" bit of energy or force to accomplish a task when you feel empty and weak. .....Gusto,....umf.
It is not an act of faith or the state of having faith, or a profession of faith or anything else you say it is. "Tu as la foi aujourd'hui?" this
means "do you have faith today". Do you believe.....dont stretch it too far there to make your argument bud.
FUAA!! is more of an ACT of overcoming. It has little to do with faith, though it does require it. It is about summoning ENERGY /force...STRENGTH OF
CHARACTER. It is more related to Chi as someone alluded to earlier.
You posted the same information TWICE and then went out of your way to shoot this down. Sorry that is a little anal..... and very "caca" of you.
3: If the word is pronounced ALMOST the same, and has A DIFFERENT meaning, it is another word. You would be surprised how many times it happens though
when similar words have similar meanings in two separate cultures.
