"Nunca te acostarás sin saber una cosa más..."

És curiós perqué porto 25 anys emprant un significat de "jeopardy" que no és l'estàndar. És a dir, amb el sentit que li donava == "poner en tela de juicio", però... encara que pot-ser veladament, la meva acepció, en anglès, existeix o ha existit...

double jeopardy == "jutjar" dues vegades

jeop.ar.dy n [ME jeopardie, fr. AF juparti, fr.
OF jeu parti, lit.,
divided game] (D'origen "trobadoresc" català-provençal)

The "jeu parti", or "débat", a debate on love between two poets; the alba, or morning song, in which lovers are warned by a night watchman that day approaches and that the jealous husband may at any time surprise them...

;-) Pot-ser d'aquest "perill" va venir l'accepció actual...;-).. però aquí els poetes posaven "en tela de judici" el seu amor i discutien sobre aquest fins l'alba...

Sembla ser que jo vaig continuar a l'edat mitjana..;-) ja que llavors "posar a la picota" era un perill palès......

"Poner en la picota. La picota es una piedra con una punta afilada en
que se colocaban las cabezas de los ajusticiados en la plaza pública o
a la entrada de las ciudades. ..."

Si algú vol traduïr a l'anglès "poner en la picota" amb una sola
paraula.. no crec que n'hi hagi cap altre que s'hi acosti tant..
deixant de banda lo de la plaça pública...: implica perill i als
"reos" s'els jutjava.. d'aqui el meu "poner en tela de juicio"

Respecte a jeopardy.. el diccionary diu el mateix que diu na Helena Martí.. encara que en el cas concret del text sobre Leonardo que va iniciar la meva investigació quedava millor: “were questioning” ..com deia el Mike..

1. perill

2. dany

1. ocasionar

2. arriesgar

3. perillar

4. posar en perill

5. danyar

6. comprometre

Però (by the way..)
és curiós que allà pels anys 80, estant a Madrid em varen demanar el significat de "jeopardize" i vaig contestar:
"poner en la picota", que curiosament està a cavall entre la v1.”posar en perill" i la v2.”posar en entredit"... el "comprometre" s'hi acosta.. però mireu la acepció jurídica...veureu que se sembla més a la v2, jo curiosament no la vaig mirar mai al diccionari, la vaig treure del context dels meus anys parlant amb gent nativa, el 85 ja
portava 25 anys navegant amb americans i anglesos...
