Re: Words You Didn't Know That Describe Things Perfectly

I have a fantastic t-shirt that reads "English doesn't borrow from other languages. English follows other languages down dark alleys, knocks them over and goes through their pockets for loose grammar." The shirt has a great picture which helps to illustrate the phrase. http://www.pegasuspu...

Re: Untranslatables

"doch" => "indeed" ? It also means "yes" when in answer to a negative question, if I recall correctly. Similar to French's "si". It can also be used as emphasis: "Ich bin doch nicht blöd!" (I surely am not stupid!) I suppose this was one of the hard...
