Fascinating facts about the German language

German landmark Both German and English belong to the West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family. If you already know English, you will have a head start in learning German since the two share around 60% of their vocabulary.

Nouns usually combine with the activity to which they relate in order to create a new word. For example, a vacuum cleaner is called a “der Staubsauger” and it’s made out of the verb “saugen” meaning “to suck” and the noun “Staub” meaning “dust”.

While in most languages, ​​only proper nouns such as personal names, country and city names are capitalized, in German, all nouns are capitalized.

German is often referred to as the language of the ‘Dichter und Denker,’ or the language of ‘writers and thinkers’ thanks to the works of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Immanuel Kant, Karl Marx, and Friedrich Nietzsche.

German is notorious for having very long words such as “in­d­fleis­chet­iket­tier­ung­süber­wachung­saufgabenüber­tra­gungs­ge­setz” meaning “law for the delegation of monitoring beef labeling”. But the longest word in the world is not German. Find out what that word
is here.
