Hi,
Can I say 'roamers thoughts' if I want to say in Spanish 'pensamientos vagabundos'?

Chao.

Creo que habrá sugerencias alternativas, pero me parece mejor decir "roaming thoughts". "Roamer" ya es un sustantivo y "choca" con "thoughts", que es otro sustantivo. Es mejor un adjetivo, como es la expresión original en español, en este caso, "roaming".

Edit:
Creo que puedes decir "roamer thoughts", sin la s final porque, al funcionar como adjetivo, el sustantivo "thoughts" es el que lleva el plural. Sin embargo, éstos serían los pensamientos de un vagabundo, no los pensamientos errantes en sí.

People in the UK would be slightly baffled by "Roaming thoughts" - it's definitely not common usage, "Wandering thoughts" would be better understood.
