How do you say “colar”in English?

COLLAR = colarinho; coleira
NECKLACE = colar

Nem pense em usar a palavra “colar” na tradução das expressões “WHITE-COLLAR WORKER” e “BLUE-COLLAR WORKER”. De colar branco ou azul, só se for trabalhadora! As duas expressões são, na realidade, referências aos funcionários de escritório e aos de fábrica, respectivamente, em que se faz alusão à cor dos colarinhos das roupas usadas por esses trabalhadores. “COLLAR” também pode significar “coleira”. Para dizer “colar” em inglês, a palavra indicada é “NECKLACE”.

WORST “HEALTHY” FOOD IN AMERICA

MacGrill_200x Romano’s Macaroni Grill’s Parmesan-Crusted Sole 2,190 calories 141 g fat (58 g saturated) 2,980 mg sodium 145 g carbs “Parmesan crusting” is a process quite similar to the one used to create mozzarella sticks and chicken strips: They’re covered with a sponge-like blanket of breadcrumbs that soaks up oil. But with Macaroni’s parmesan crust, cheese is mixed in with the breadcrumbs. So it’s essentially just another way to ruin a perfectly lean piece of fish. In fact, no parmesan-crusted item on Romano’s menu has fewer than 1,000 calories. Run away, while you still can.
