bear

Bear    (noun)- is a big wild animal that lives in the mountains (un oso)

bear-bore-born  (verb)- means carry BUT it’s only used in certain special cases.

EXAMPLES:

bearer cheque- is one made to the person who carries it, el portador

You can say:

I can’t bear with this pain. (to tolerate- soportar)

To bear a child (dar a luz) – is where most Spanish people make mistakes as the way to say nacer is passive in English. Montse was born in 1984.

Queen Anne bore (dio a luz) eighteen children.

You shoudn’t say:

I bear your shopping from the supermarket.

Montse has born in 1984. (Because her mother carried or bore her during pregnancy)
