Un chiste:)

Hola a todos, un chiste penqueño para los amantes de los idiomas

¿Por qué se conduce en un "parkway" y se aparca en un "driveway"?

Los idiomas pueden ser muy complicado

Lenguajes pueden ser muy complicados
I would have used idiomas instead of lenguajes.

I guess for the same reason you.......

ship - by airplane (not ship)
cargo - by ship and airplane (not car)
freight - by truck (not train)

Shall I continue?

I'd like to laugh at it, but I'm not able to, I don't understand anything at all

And why do you finish with "shall"?

Irmamar, nos divertimos porque las palabras en inglés a veces son muy extrañas

Driveway (this is where we "park" our cars, not drive them
Parkway (where we "drive" our cars , not park them)
We "ship" packages by airplane, not by ship

¡La persona la que crea estas palabras es muy loca!

Aquí son muy típicos los chistes de juegos de palabras. Un ejemplo muy típico son los colmos:

- ¿Cuál es el colmo de un jardinero?
- Que su hija se llame Rosa y que su novio la deje plantada.

- ¿Cuál es el colmo de un carpintero?
- Tener una hija cómoda y un hijo comedor.

- ¿Cuál es el colmo de un electricista?
- Que no le sigan la corriente.

etc.

Busca los significados individuales de las palabras que se usaron y confrontalas con las frases escritas y tu dirás si le ves el chiste.

Shall I (verb) es una manera de preguntar Debiera yo...?

En los juego de palabras que escribiste sobre los colmos podrías perfectamente haber terminado con "Debiera continuar con estas frases?" preguntando con gracia/humor. (cute)
