mein freund Jim

Für die englischsprachigen die texte sind wie folgt:


You
You have
You have me
You have me to say
You have me to say
And I did not obey

Will you until death does sever
Be upright to her forever

Never

Will you 'til death be her rider
Her lover too, to stay inside her

Never

As with many things German, translation is not always directly possible

Beifall

Any chance you might be able to help out ?

G'day Die Judici,

I'm game to try to translate your document, but I might need help from Lazarus. I suspect his German is more advanced, idiomatic and sophisticated than my schoolboy and university German from 50 years ago. If you send me an image via a new general Off-topic post or via a PM I'll have a crack.

Ah Jim, if only meine freund.

I'm battling, seemingly in vain, to teach myself via a computer program.
Learning German words and their meanings is ein kleiner Aufwand, putting them together into grammatically correct sentences is bending my brain cell.

Our conversation yesterday was courtesy of Dr Google's AI, I'm afraid.

G'day DJ,

Could you start a new Off-topic post and attach a copy of the article/document to be translated to it? It would give Lazarus and me a bit more practice with our German-English 'ubersetzen'. [I wouldn't have a clue as to why you can't send me - only me - a PM.]

Lazarus re German grammar: "....putting them together into grammatically correct sentences is bending my brain cell."

Yes, there are special rules about word order. Consider this English sentence: "The boy sitting in the tree." Auf Deutsch: "Der auf dem Baum sitzende Knabe." As you say literal translation to English can be strange: "The on-the-tree-sitting boy." Then, if my elderly memory serves me correctly, there is TOMP: Time, Object, Manner, Place in relation to the correct order of words in sentences in formal German and verbs often coming last. At least French is closer to English word order, e.g. "La plume de ma tante" - "The pen of my aunt.", but I could never cope with the French accent. It was far too subtle for me, whereas the German accent and pronunciation I found easier - except when I met Austrians whom I could never understand!

Thank you Jim, I think I learned more from that one response than I've managed in ages. :drinks:
I'll apply TOMP.
The difference between me and a computer is, you only have to punch information into a computer once :lol:

We had compulsory language classes when I was in first form, our choice of French or German, but most of us spent more time tormenting the unfortunate lady given the task.
She wasn't teacher material, I clearly remember the day she realised the fact, she had said to us "I will not teach you until you are QUIET!"
I'm sure you can picture how well that worked.
I've often wondered what her next career choice may have been.

You may also be able to solve something else for me Jim.

There's a German word with no English equivalent that means "to wait longer than necessary for something you want so that you'll enjoy it even more when you get it", a typically Germanic sentiment I can understand.

I realise that speaking a foreign language doesn’t mean one knows every obscure word, but I ask everyone I find who can sprechen sie deutsch.
It's about three mouths full of syllables and I've only heard it once, it's fascinated me ever since.

I've exhausted every search string I can think of, to no avail

Lazarus: 'to wait longer than necessary for something you want so that you'll enjoy it even more when you get it'


'Man muss länger als nötig auf etwas zu warten, das man sich wünscht um es mehr zu genießen......' [Literal: 'One must longer than necessary wait, for something that one wants for him/her-self so it more to enjoy...'] There's that German word order again!

However my German is Hochdeutsch or school German hence formal so I'm not good at colloquialisms or vernacular usage, especially those long compound words used by German speakers. I regret never having the opportunity to go live in Germany and really learn the language.
