Lost in translation
Today's French word of the day from Transparent Language is:
enjeu, English translation: stake, Part of speech: noun
French: Les enjeux liés à l'eau ne font que s'intensifier dans cette région.
English: The water related stakes are only intensifying in the region.
Not quite in the league of "my postillion has been struck by lightning" but equally baffling.
