Yes, you are right.

I mixed a word with similar sound to spanish word (morosidad) with a english word which has nothing to do with that. The expression ‘loan delinquency’ that I find hard to remember (maybe because on spanish ‘delinquency’ has more to do with criminal acts. Sorry.

No worries, Barto. Cognates are tricky since they are often, but not always, reliable. I’m just disappointed I can’t quantify my morosity. Would I be a 7 or a 2 on the Eyore scale, I wonder? wink

Yes, no worries at all, Barto. Just thought I’d clear it up.

FWIW, “delinquency” has basically the same meaning in english that it does in spanish. (Committing criminal acts). This use of the term is technical.

Well, my morosity (I guess is more correct moroseness, could be?) varies in a wide range. I guess sometimes I run out of serotonin and my mososity raises… mainly in winter grin (well, I don’t have religious experience, but I note my mood tends to change with seasons).

Eyore because of the winnie the pooh character?. grin
