- Leitmotif (Leitmotiv in german)
Whereof one can not speak, there of one must remain silent.
Most languages have an onomatopoeic response word to sneezing which itself sounds like a sneeze!
I also don't understand the "German for above" part. "Deutschland über alles" probably refers to the National Anthem as it's a line but it actually means "Germany above all". Is "German for above" a thing? I mean I don't see a connection there.
Never heard of a Stein either but that's probably cause it depends on the region you're at how that mug is called. To me it looks like a Bembel, which is a mug for applewine though.
And Umlaut still is a German word in English, even if the meaning slightly shifted.
Admission: snuck sounds better to me
Edit:ow yea also didnt get realpolitik. Never heard of it (and sounds more english than german to me, besides the k at the end ofcourse)
So it would be interesting to know if it is currently in a German dictionary as an own word or a borrowed one.
Also Dackel is 100 times more common in Germany than Dachshund 🇩🇪
Dachshund is even used on the memorial which was built for the german emperors (Wilhelm II.) Dachshund Erdmann.
