Hi! I just wanted to add that "argumento" is also friend of "argument" meaning supporting  examples and evidence of a statement.

Hi Blanca, I'm a native Spaniard and I would like to congratulate you for your excellent work. About false friends, it's actually quite useful for both English and Spanish learners! Some of them are especially tricky (sensitive-sensible) or funny (It's quite common for starting English learners to say "I'm constipated" during the winter).
