What is the exact meaning of English "debil"?
My friend, a professional translator told me that it is not the equivalent of the Russian "дебил", but many Russian translators translate debil as дебил so it is a kind of "popular mistake"
What is the meaning of debil? Is it a medical word? Can it be used to offend someone?
