Multilingual Phrase of the Day - Part II

One thing Lilia says every now and again is

"Ich got kalt" ("I'm cold")

Sometimes she even says "I got kalt".

That looks like English and German, but it is actually a French sentence!

The only language in her repertoire that uses "have" in conjunction with "cold" is French.

We think this happens because I am from the North and do not often complain about low temperatures. So the only input she gets on that is in French or Arabic.
