    Do you have funfacts about your own language?

    Here are some random funfacts about German:
    • If a word ends with ´chen´ it eighter describes a small thing or a cute thing. It can also mean a combination of a small and cute thing
    • The swearword ´Mongo´ wich is another way to call someone an idiot comes from the diseas called ´Mongolitis´ aka. the downsyndrom
    • Most people call a kitten ´Kätzchen´ wich means "small and cute cat" because the word for a cat is ´Katze´ but the actuall term for a kitten is ´Katzenwelpe´ wich means someting like ´catpuppy´ lmao
    • ´Alman´ is a slangword that describes a German person or a foreigner who is living in Germany who behaves very stereotypical German
    if you want I can post more funfacts about German ~

    Romanian and Korean are the only language available that have î and ㅡ.
    Btw in Hangul ㅡ is followed by ㅇ since vowels won't be represent alone so you have to put the consonant in front.

    "Ba ba ba ba?" is actually when you're asking if something (ex. Elavator) is heading down.

    "Manga" can be the fruit(Mango) or a shirt/t-shirt/jacket/etc's sleeve(also called Manga), it all depends on the context.

    The word “Kal” in Urdu can mean ‘tomorrow’ and ‘yesterday’, depending on the context. There are many words that can be used as an expression in Urdu but they do not exist in the English vocabulary.
