Spanish to English embarazado

Dictionary entry: embarazado

Roger RC

This is a false cognate. Embarazado means (he is) pregnant which is impossible.
Estoy embarazado does not mean I am embarrassed, that's a wrong translation.

    Thanks for your report, Roger RC. You might have missed that several terms appear when you search for "embarazado", including intransitive verbs like embarazarse and transitive verbs like embarazar, as well as the adjective form. Therefore, several meanings appear on the same page, including the sense that means "awkward" as well as the sense that means "pregnant". This is how the WR dictionary search functions. We apologize for the confusion.
