      Description

      noun [col.loq]
      parÓsit??

      There is almost certainly a better Catalan equivalent than 'parÓsit' I just don't happen to know what it is.

      A 'sponger' or a 'freeloader' is someone who lives off the generosity of others without reciprocating.

      According to the Oxford Advanced Learners' Dictionary:

      freeloader
      a person who is always accepting free food and accommodation from other people without giving them anything in exchange

      sponger
      a person who gets money, food, etc. from other people without doing anything for them or offering to pay

        It could be "gorrer" or "gorrista", that come from the expression "de gorra".

        2 fig 1 de gorra A despeses d'altri, especialment abusant-ne. NomÚs ve a casa per poder menjar de gorra.
