"Quali sono le tue mansioni?"

The English translation is given as “Which is your mansion?” Hmm, confusing until I realised it should more than likely be “What are your duties/tasks”.

Mansione - a very false friend;-)

A dopo…

@mike-lima Title corrected;-)

Also “mansione” is feminine, so “Quali sono le tue mansioni”.

Interestingly, the English meaning is closer to the original Latin of “dwelling”, although it now refers to a specific type of dwelling.

We have “magione” that means “house” in a kind of pompous way…

I would probably translate “mansion” as “villa” I think…

Hi @mike-lima To be fair to Cloze, it was “… le tue mansioni”. I’ve corrected my title.

Cheers…
