When my Canadian-born friend Jessica Reid first asked someone, “Do you want a ride,” by kindly offering to give her a lift in her car, she definitely wasn’t offering the Irish slang interpretation of the word, which is grossly inappropriately mistranslated could.

When an American friend uses AAVE (African American Vernacular English) to say, “I’ll call you later, dog,” he’s saying he’ll call later. They will not beat up anyone, nor will they call the person a “dog.” The unfortunate consequences of such misunderstandings can be comical, but also serious.
