comment Why isn't “good morning” “buenas mañanas”?
@CesarGon Well, all these languages share the same root. Note that in German it's Guten Morgen, and in Chinese it's 早上好. Both of these translate literally to "good morning".

comment How can I distinguish between “girlfriend,” “fiancée” and “bride”, which are all “novia”?
@Flimzy I think "between" is more correct than "among" in this case: english.stackexchange.com/a/37640/5755

Now that I think about it, it's bom dia in Portuguese, bonjour in French, and buongiorno in Italian. So I guess the origin of the expression goes back to their common root.

comment Why are certain words ending in “a” masculine?
For what it's worth, all these words are spelled the exact same way in Portuguese. And they are also all masculine.
