dsfklsajflsjfdlk that’s the german word for kittens?
literally: “cat children”
ISN’T GERMAN A CUTE LANGUAGE
DO YOU KNOW THE GERMAN WORD FOR BAT
HOW IS THAT NOT JUST KAWAII AS HECK
My favorite is their word for bagpipes.
But then their word for skull is Totenkopf, as in Death’s Head.
So German basically has two settings, kawaii and metal, and there is no in between.
I love German.
Reblogging for the German lesson.
light bulb = “Glühbirne”, literally glow pear
also we have an obsession with pockets apparently
flashlight = “Taschenlampe”, pocket lamp
paperback = “Taschenbuch”, pocket book
tissue = “Taschentuch”, pocket cloth
also the sausage thing is kinda legit because there’s a song that contains the line “alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei” meaning everyhing has an end, but sausage has two
what is German even
