Quote from: Hannes on February 13, 2014, 07:02:58 amGerman has its roots in the old germanian languages. There may be some latin influences, as well as french ones and a lot of english words during the last decades.There are also a lot of similarities with english depending on the area. For example my grandma came from Northern Germany (near Bremen). When she was talking to her sister in their (heavy) dialect, I didn't understand a word at that time, but I remember they had some very english sounding words. They said "mother" for example instead of the german "Mutter" and they didn't say "er", but the english "he" but pronounced it like "hay".

Quote from: Lady of the Lake on March 10, 2014, 11:38:46 pmMine is pretty blah compared to some of you. I lived at the Lake of the Ozarks, Mo. when we got our first computer. First forum I joined and they asked for a screen name "Lady of the Lake" just popped into my head. Several years later we moved to Texas so I considered changing my name. But as luck would have it, we got a house directly across from the swimming pool so I figured that surely counted as a small lake. (no boats allowed!)
