The German word for ‘glove’ is so cute.

Handschuh

hand shoe

we have so many cute words, actually

like Brötchen, it’s the word for bun, comes from the German word for bread Brot and is just the minimization. basically…

Am I supposed to be impressed that the German for glove is ‘handshoe’ and that they have diminutives? It’s not exactly unique to the language, is it?

and who pissed in your cornflakes this morning?

Nobody was saying it’s unique, we were just enjoying the beauty that is language. Now, would you mind being unnecessary aggressive somewhere else?
