Germanisms in English (w/ Robb Knapp)
Play • 26 min

English has a great number of foreign words and loan words in its vast vocabulary, with many of them coming from German. Some of these are more obviously German in origin, like pretzel or zeitgeist, and some of them might not initially seem like they come from German at all, like lager or rainforest

In this episode I am joined by Robb Knapp (German English Words) as we talk about words and phrases that have come from German into English. We discuss whether these words mean the same thing in English as they do in German, and how they ended up in English in the first place.
