VIDEO: Watch this hilarious demo of how German sounds when compared to other languages

Languages have their own unique evolution regardless of their relative common origins, and probably the most unique feature of different languages is their sound.  

The great “romance languages,” like French or Italian, are given that characterization because of the way they are known to soothe the ear. German, however, can be a bit rough as you’re about to see in the video we posted below.

The Copy Cat Channel on Youtube posted a hilarious comparison of what the same words sound like in different languages. As you might have guessed, German is in an auditory league all of its own.

    Not a demo of anything and mildly amusing at best. It’s a tired old joke stereotyping German as sounding harsh. English however is a Germanic language. They cherry-picked to avoid words that are very similar in English and German. Also, my mind boggles that the copy says romance languages are so named because they’re known to be soothing to the ear. OMG, romance languages are descended from Latin which came from Rome!

    The writer of this piece is woefully ignorant of language. The “romance” languages are called that not because they are “soothing to the ear” but because they all derive from Latin, the language of the ancient Romans.
    The English word “stupid” is a romance language derivative, and sounds similar in French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
    So, this writer is stupid in five languages.

    They’re not called Romance languages “because of the way they are known to soothe the ear.” They all evolved from Latin, which was the “Roman” language. They’re also commonly called “Romanic” languages. German, unsurprisingly, is a “Germanic” language — as is English, though of course English gets much of its vocabulary from Romance languages due to the constant influx of Continental cultures into the British Isles (including the Romans themselves).

    I was going to say about the same thing, but you said it better. The video is actually rather insulting. Let someone like Marlena Dietrich say those words, and they would sound quite a bit different. That guy wasn’t speaking German, he was clearing his throat.
