How do you say 'lederhosen' in Sanskrit?
Some German words are cognates (meaning are similar) to words in English. That is because they both have some common roots.
Fortunately for the German speaking world it's words are a bit more literally translated then the arcane and undecipherable English (whatever brand). Italian may be much more consistent in it's pronunciation but they have nothing over the 'Tchermans'.
An early name for a vehicle that became known as 'der tank' was something like 'schutzen vergrabenzie automobilenzie' (bad spelling) which translated as: shooting, armored automobile. Verstehei?
I should have been a linguist and I would have been cunning at it.
