  • And the torture of the German language continues… well, at least this time, it’s almost a real word.

    • Its a fantasy show..it’s not real so who cares if its real Deutche or not? Im German and it doesnt bother me a bit. Its all in fun…Ser Shon. :) Maybe Peggy Hill — Temporary Spanish teacher on Hank Hill (also a fantasy show) — should be hired on as a writer and they can use some of her Spanish words! LOL :) That would be funny!

      • It’s kinda easy to find Germanic words to fit these creatures

    • Get over it and yourself, Heseltine. Its fantasy show not something that’s real. Unless perhaps you are under the delusion that there are Vessen prowling about.

      • One never knows. My name translates fron German to English as bad or evil and I live 40 miles outside of Portland…..we are prowling everywhere. ;)

    • German is no stranger to torture, my god how many ‘the’s’ does a language need? Luckily the only people I speak German to, tend to be non native German speakers and we use it as a bridge language, so no one much cares if we’re fudging the grammar.

  • I just want to add to other comments here and say that medieval German was VERY different from modern German. Even modern German translators have trouble with the medieval, because there were regional variations & many different dialects. Germany didn’t become a single unified state until mid-1800′s. Standardized German language would have come after that. Do I think Grimm writers are using medieval German? Probably not, but who knows? To be strictly accurate Nick’s book would have been written in medieval German or in different dialects, at the very least.

    • I´m German and I have fun with these pseudo-german words. ^^ And “Fuchsteufelswild” is a real German saying.
      The texts in Nicks book are not in medieval German or different dialects. More like google translator. It doesn´t bother me. I´m not looking the show for accurate German, but because it is a great show.
      (and sorry for my bad english)

      • Bad English, ha! I don’t doubt you speak my mother tongue better then I do :)
        Any which moo, thanks for letting us know a German’s perspective

  • it’s a kind of a German pig Latin spoken by 5th generation in the segregated Volga German/Russian neighborhood in St Johns north Portland. And if you think that’s a language slaughter try the street slang mixed Vietnamese..

  • I can’t believe that someone has a hang up on whether or not the German is “correct” or not, this is for entertaining purposes only. Give me a break. If you can’t watch the show and enjoy it don’t watch it! Just my opinion.

  • Please, does anyone know when we can see this in the UK? I watched all the others (age 51) with my daughter and loved it!

    • Claire,

      You can see all of the episodes online: http://www.nbc.com/grimm/. I watch on tv when I can, but otherwise, I catch up by watching on NBC’s website.

  • Is this a “hopping mad” wolverine? “Synonyms” listed in Wikipedia include:

  • There’s an error in the English, too. “Shutter” should be “shudder.” #Grimmscan’tspell

  • German here, too. It doesn’t bother me that some names for Wesen are a bit weird or a mix of German and English (Skalenzahn ftw), actually that’s kinda funny – this one is pretty accurate btw, I guess ‘hopping mad’ is a good translation. :)

  • Who wrote the text on the illustration? Spelling is horrible!
    Love the show, and my German boyfriend gets a huge kick out of the funny German names.
