i was wondering if you can help me out with something.
I've been struggling to figure out whether the word power (meaning of strength), as it is in english, is known/understood around the world.
probably not. But i would say that "power" would generally be understood as "a source of electricity" rather than as "strength" - because this is the usage it receives most often in the media. Coal power, nuclear power, etc.
another common meaning is "control". Eg. "which party is in power in your country?"
do the majority of people in your countries know what power mean in their own language?
most languages do not have "power" in their lexicons.
any helps would be greatly appreciated.
