Here we call them stupid apastrophes because the German language rarely uses apostrophes, but with the increasing influence of the English language people use the apostrophe for German words in the craziest ways.

Som are thinking every word that ends with S has to have an apostrophe before.

I sincerely demand apology from the English language!

No,no,no.........you do not put a apostrophe anywhere on New Years Day due to the fact no-one "owns" New Years Day............. but having said that if i were to "invite" you to "my" New Years party I just may place the apostrophe AFTER the "s" like so...... New Years' Day , I would not place it BEFORE the "s" due to the fact that the evening would belong to "all" that attends not just "me" who will host it!

the "day" belongs to the "New Year."

we're only talking about one year. it is not a plural.

Alright, with apologies to Zoomerang69, I am going to put this pie/tart debate to rest once and for all. The only difference is the pan you use to bake it in. Tarts are made in tart pans and pies are made in pie pans. They look slightly different but the contents are quite similar.

And who says we don't have meat pies in America? True, savory pies are not as abundant here as in Australia but we do have them. Martha, what about Shepherd's Pie or Chicken Pot Pie?

I'm goutraged, guys.

Food I refuse to eat, no matter how many times my mom made a chicken pot "pie."

PIES do not have peas oozing out of them.

I'm studyin in a german speaking country for the semester and I have to say, you People and your Capitalization of every Noun are killing me and my Quiz Grades. Also your damn Genders, I mean for the Words they are OK if harder than spanish because the end of the words usually don't tell you their gender. But saying "she is clean" to refer to a damn fork (or whichever one of the utensils is die, never can remember...) is just dumb.

So yeah, apologize yourself.


My boyfriend thanks this thread for educating him about the beauties of the meat cake. If I ever marry him, I sincerely unthank this thread for forcing a meat cake upon my wedding.

He wasn't put off by the fact that it entered the thread via the "Black Widow Bakery" website?

Sorry!

German really isn't the easiest language, especially through the genders.
But don't worry, even the Germans are confused at times which gender to use.
There's also a saying: Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache, German language, difficult language, but you aren't really allowed to say it because some deem it racist.

With the capitalization of nouns also is an advantage of other languages that doesn't have it. It makes it just easier, faster to write on a keyboard, and I think is as useful.
But we are used to use the capital letters and nouns, and so the last reform didn't change it.
It even made it more difficult, because now there are more cases where you have to use capital letters in verbs and adjectives.

I think, with the grammar German is one of the hardest European languages. But I can't say too much about eastern European languages.

So don't worry too much about genders, we will understand you
