    Kein Problem(gah, the gender of that word always throws me off. It's feminine in all other languages...). Ich bin froh, dass du denkst, dass ich Deutsch OK sprechen kann. Hoffentlich werde ich es besser lernen...

    Natuerlich ist es hier besser als in Kiel (ich weiss nicht einmal wo Kiel liegt)! Aber warum denkst du das? Wahrscheinlich weil es hier legal ist Wiet zu rauchen? Ich frage mich ob Deutsche auch andere Dingen ueber die Niederlanden wissen...

    @Pravit: Interestingly enough, in Dutch it's also not feminine (het Probleem). Maybe it's a Germanic thing. Strong and solid. We're no pansy effeminate Romance language speakers.
    [edit:] seems that it's le probl

    Russian has the most influence over all of my foreign languages so it counts as "all other languages." And as I said earlier, my French is bad... I think I once said "aviabiljet" when I was speaking German and everyone looked at me weird...

    auch auf Polnisch "problem" ist maennlich also es ist kein "Germanic
    thing". Das Wort ist eigentlich lateinisch also es ist wirklich unklar
    warum die Russen das Wort angenohmen haben und gleich von maennlich zur weiblich veraendert haben.

    Auf Italienisch und Spanisch ist 'Problema' auch weiblich... Sogar auf Lateinisch. O ja, und es ist ein Griechisches Wort.

    ja, vielleicht. Doch ist es wahrscheinlicher dass das Wort kam ins Russisch
    von der deutschen Sprache

    πρόβλημα

    Notice the "a" in the end. In general, Russian keeps its Greek borrowings closer to the original than many other languages.

    Yes, but English is the only language I know of that keeps its Greek "eu"s sounding Greek

    Europe
    like Eutopia, though it should really be Europa...but things change over the years anyway..

    Really? ευ should be pronounced as "ef" or "ev", not as "you". The Russian pronunciation of "Europe" (Европа) and "euphemism" (эвфемизм) is very similar to the original, the English is absolutely not. Classic Latin also treats classic Greek decently (not when pronounced by a half-educated student of Latin, though).

    We don't know how Greek was pronounced. Certainly, Modern Greeks pronounce 'eu' as 'ef', but in Holland we learn it's pronounced like the Dutch 'ui' (Scottish 'ow' as in 'now'), English say it's like 'you', French say it's like the eu in 'deux'. Germans say it like 'oy', but that's of course completely wrong. I thought that in Latin, 'deus' was pronounced as 'day-oos' and that this was the same as in Greek. (Dzay-oos for 'Zeus')

    In Latin, "eu", which originally was "ev" ('u' was a late addition to the alphabet), was pronounced as a short "e" and then a short "u"; this is so because "v" is either English "w" or "oo" (they added 'u' for the latter case). That is still coherent with the way "ευ" should be pronounced. German and Dutch are closer to the proper sound because it is still a diphthong, English apparently adopted the French pronunciation, and the French, well, will always be French when it comes to pronunciation. What other language can transform "aqua" into "eau"?

    Thou errst therein, my good Sir. Indeed, Romans didn't have the letter 'u', but they did have the sound, in the form of a 'vocalic' v. Just as they didn't have the letter j, only as a 'consonantal' i.
    Devs and bonvs, for example, were pronounced Day-oos and Bone-oos, but vox and divitiae as Vox and Dih-vits-ee-aye.
    It would be very hard to pronounce bonvs with a consonantal v, now would it?

    [edit]I see that I overlooked the point you were trying to make. I apologise, but nevertheless this may be of interest.

    Yeah, exactly, Bonnvvzz. It is just like 'aufs' instead of 'auf das', with the f being replaced by a 'v' and with an 'n' before ... maybe I have an advantage because clusters of consonants are very common in german :P

    And it's also just like 'apple', only with an n before the 'app', v between the p and l, s at the end, and without the a, p, p, l or e. Come on, that's no comparison. I know it's easy to pronounce 'fs' or 'vz', English has loads of examples, like poofs, loves etc. The n before it is what's tricky. Try saying bonn-vv-zz quickly, and not bonn-vus or bonne-vvzz. And then, please, agree that it's easier to say 'Bone-oos'. Which is what they did...
