What are some dumb mistakes you make in your learned languages as a result of studying other languages? I've found I confuse Swedish "och" with Spanish "o" because of the similar pronunciation, so that in a fully Swedish conversation, I understand och as meaning English "or". This mistake carries on into Norwegian, where I confuse "og" with German "oder", so that I use "og" when I mean "eller". What mix-ups do you make?
