Trono/a

My students teach me lots of interesting things.  On Friday, I taught a private English class to two of my newer pupils–little blonde nine-year-old girls from a wealthy family.  Very cute, very enthusiastic.  Here is what they taught me:

 high chair = trona

 Which is funny (to me at least), since trono, the masculine from of the noun, means “throne”.

 So a high chair is like a throne for kids.  Nice.
