Often by changing just one letter you can transform a German word into English. Here are a few examples: Example:K becomes Ch Kalk/Chalk Z becomes T Zoll/Toll D becomes Th Danke/Thanks SS becomes T Wasser/Water Y becomes F Volk/Folk Pf becomes P Pfad/Path Likewise many word endings also follow similar patterns: Example: +fach becomes +fold Zweifach/Twofold +nis becomes +ness Wildernis/Wilderness +ung becomes +ing Endung/Ending +voll becomes +ful Wundervoll/Wonderful +los becomes +less Hofnungslos/Hopeless Beware False Friends! 1. “+heit (hood)/+keit(hood)/+nis(ness)” often match, but NOT ALWAYS Example:“Bruderschaft” is “brotherhood” “Freundtichkeit” is “Friendliness” 2. Over the centuries some common everyday words have changed meanings Example: Klein (small) Clean (not dirty) Lust (desire) Lust (sexual desire) 3. Lastly for some strange reason some word components are reversed Example: Stillstand – Standstill
