Donay, I´m not really sure if this qualifies as a false cognate, but it seems close. Whenever my boss said "I expect that this will be done," you took it at your own peril the interpretation that it was a mere wish, or even something he thought desirable but optional.
Maybe you will do a "False Cognate?" dealing with ESPERAR, EXPECTATIVA, WISH, WAIT, AND EXPECT.
I do remember some evil teacher asking me a question I couldn´t answer. There would be silence.
"I´m waiting," he´d say.
It was terrifying.
