    Default What is it with..

    What are those words, if they have a category, that are misued per:

    Chai tea (Actually Chai translate to tea) so this is like saying
    "Tea Tea"

    PC computer (PC means personal computer-used out of context to mean IBM based machines)
    "Personal Computer Computer"

    Bo Staff (In martial arts a staff is a quarter stick-bo is the Asian term and translates the same)
    "Stick Staff"

    Aregent Silver
    "Silver Silver"


    Can you think of any others?

    That one's not even good Japanese--the yama is normally pronounced san in that case.
