Number 6 is wrong.

the time spent after lunch or dinner, talking to the people you shared the meal with, is called a conversation (conversación).
Sobremesa means: table cover, at least in Mexico and most of the Spanish speaking countries, but i'd like to know which country uses sobremesa to describe a conversation.

In Portuguese sobremesa is the dessert.


SAUDADE (Portuguese) - Means the heart sickness (or pain) that you feel when you are away from home or from your loved ones

Dude I live in Mexico and Sobremesa is indeed the time you spend on the table after the meal is finished... it's literally table cover but it is also a very common expression that people continue to use. http://www.wordreference.com/definicion/sobremesa

I'm Spanish. Sobremesa is the time you spend where you have lunch after you finish eating. Usually is a time to take a coffee, talk, take a nap, etc.

Table cover would be mantel.

So number 6 is not wrong.

PS: I didn't give you the negative :P

PS 2 Depaysement (French) = Morriña (Spanish and probably Portuguese too since is a word that comes from Galicia and their language is really similar to Portuguese)

Sobremesa in Spain has that meaning.

The table cover you're talking about is called mantel.

In Spain.


Actually, I just checked www.drae.es (official Spanish language website) and Sobremesa has 3 meanings.

1.-table cover (not to eat).
2.-Time in the table after lunch.
3.-Dessert.
