Not always. We Germanizied some brand names in terms of pronunciation. The best example is propably Miracle Whip.

Edit: And even my own name Sarah. I react to both versions but in German it is closer to the clothing brand Zarah.



Random people when they find out I’m learning German: how do you say [either a person’s name or a brand name] in German

Me: it’s literally the same thing

Pronunciation may be different but the word itself rarely changes

More of my dumb tricks that help me with german words

Wofür- means “for what.” I remember I cuz it sounds similar to “what for”

Wandern- means “hike.” I remember that cuz it sounds similar to wandering and hikes are kind of wandering around

Solange- means “as long as.” I remember that cuz it sounds like it’s saying so long as

Abenteuer- means “adventures.” I remember that cuz it sounds similar when said out loud

Mit- means “with.” Again, it just sounds similar

Von- a way to say “from.” When said out loud, it sounds similar to from

Bei- another way to say “with.” The context duolingo just used it in was “Unsere Pässe sind bei mir.” I dont know if this trick would work in other contexts, but with this one I just thought of it as being “by me.” It has a similar meaning so it works well enough.

Someone: *points at food* what’s that called

Person from Germany: honestly, it depends entirely on where you are and using the wrong word if you’re unlucky is going to be more offensive than most of the swear words in the entire language

The same German: But also, it’s definitely this word from the region I grew up in and everyone else is just plain wrong

Finn: Guten Morgen!

Me: it’s not morning

Finn: I would’ve said Guten Dach but you would have been confused

Me: doesn’t that mean roof


Me: what

Finn: *goes on to talk about dialects*

Me: I don’t like dialects

I made a sentence today on the bus and I believe it has proper grammar and sentence order. It’s amazing that my first sentence was an insult.

Me, trying to show some 6th graders the little bit of German I know: uhhh deine Mutter ist ein Kuh (if I did it right, that should mean “your mother is a cow” UwU)
