Germans say what? (Part 1)
German language… the nouns have a gender, there are umlauts and sometimes the language can be very direct.
In German they don’t say light bulb, they say Glühbirne which literally translates to ‘glowing-pear.”
A turtle is called a Schildkröte, which means “shield-toad.”
A toy is a Spielzeug or “play-thing”…
…a vehicle or Fahrzeug is a “drive-thing”…
… and a plane is a Flugzeug, which means “fly thing.”
We hope you’ve enjoyed these literal translations, have a lovely weekend and we will have Part 2 for you next week! 🙂
