Whas ist dis Denglisch about?

green_line_faded_with_leaf_smallerThis morning my professor from university posted this hilarious article on her Facebook page and I just had to share it with all y’all. I have never heard of Denglisch before, so for those who don’t know it’s basically combining parts of english words with German ones. I have studied German in the past and so I do recognize that there are some similarities in some of the words, like cat is katze or water is wasser. Basically, it’s just a cool idea to enrich the english language, since for most of the words shown in the examples, we simply do not have an equivalent for.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I love this. I have a book that’s sort of similar, but does it with all sorts of languages. My favourite German word will always be ‘kugelschreiber’, though.
