for example " mum " which means that mother in English but it means that like candle in turkish.

The word pan means a casserole in English but it means bread in Spanish.

Another one is the word once in English means one time but in Spanish it means eleven.

For example, in English, the world costume means a style of dressing, but in Portuguese it means the habit of people doing 'something' very often.
