“Cambiar de Mente” doesn’t mean to “Change Your Mind”. – Spanish For America

“Cambiar de Mente” doesn’t mean to “Change Your Mind”.

Con los adelantos científicos, los trasplantes de corazón, de hígado, de riñón son cada vez más frecuentes, pero lo que hasta ahora no se ha conseguido (que yo sepa) es el trasplante de cerebro y, trasplantar el cerebro equivaldría a trasplantar la mente. Pero, frecuentemente oímos que alguien “cambió de mente”. ¿Qué mente habrá cambiado? Posiblemente la de una persona de habla inglesa, la cual hubiera dicho: “I changed my mind”. Tal vez, quien dijo que “cambió de mente” lo que quiso decir fue que “cambió de idea o de opinión”.
