Interested in Language
How should I call a guy who plays the friend but isn't really a friend?
As far as I know a false friend is used in languages.
I'll try to explain it better:
An English word that sounds very similar to another word from another language.
actual -> wrong -> False friend
current -> right
But as said: I'm looking for the human false friend
Can I use false friend anyway?
My dictionairy gave me these other versions:
Your "friend" shall hence forth be called a "Judas" - the type of person who will betray you in the end, and is not to be trusted.
Tom: So, you ditched your girlfriend?
Harry: Yeah, caught her on the bathroom floor with that Judas Richard.
Tom: That bastard! When?
Harry: Last Wednesday morning. I forgot my laptop on the way to the office, so headed home to get it,...
