    barrier - Translation

    Hi,

    Could the word "barrier" mean someone who pays/funds costs?

    Thanks!

    No. I think the word you're looking for is "bearer," such as a "bearer bond." A bearer bond is sort of like a money order or check, but it does not have a name inscribed on it - it is payable to whomever presents it for payment.

    Thank you!
    Can I say: They bear the travel costs.

    (does bearing also apply to a pregnant woman?)
