Stickstoff

So, let’s say that you’re attending a small conference about agriculture. Sooner or later, one of the speakers will start talking about fertilisers. Nothing out of the ordinary yet. Nevertheless, after some time, you realise that some words that you don’t know are mentioned more often than others. You feel that these words must be important because a lot of graphs come along with them. You start feeling nervous but keep smiling and assenting until you gather some courage:

- “Entschuldigung, what is ‘Stickstoff’?” – you ask
- “‘Nitrogen’, natürlich” – they reply.

And then you start researching…

Wasserstoff = Hidrogen
Kohlenstoff = Carbon
Stickstoff = Nitrogen
Sauerstoff = Oxygen
Schwefel = Sulfur
and some more…

You ask yourself “Warum?” but you know the answer…

Hallo!

Inspired by this funny (except for Germans) videos [1, 2, 3] I decided to write about those things that are pretty much the same in some of the most common languages but are “a bit different” in our beloved “deutsche Sprache”.

I think it’s the perfect excuse for keeping updated SoTMaR’s Blog and having some fun at the same time.

I hope you like it.

Grüße,

SoTMaR
