Women To English Dictionary
« on: October 07, 2004, 04:46:28 PM »
There is a new "Frau/Deutsch" Dictionary by German Comedian Barth.
Is there any plan to create similar "Women/English" dictionary?


A new German-language dictionary is being published next month to help German men ‘translate’ what German women say. The dictionary, a co-production by the well-known Langenscheidt dictionary-publishing house and a popular German stand-up comedian, is being delivered to bookstores nationwide amid a flurry of pre- publication publicity.

The ‘Deutsch-Frau/Frau-Deutsch’ (German-Woman/Woman-German) dictionary is 128 pages long and makes up in punny one-liners what it might lack in girth. For example, it defines ‘let’s just cuddle a while’ as a German woman’s way of saying “I don’t want sex tonight.”

And when out shopping with a woman, when a man hears her say: “Why don’t you queue up at the check-out counter”, that means he is going to be paying for her purchases. The dictionary is a brainchild of comedian Berlin-born Mario Barth, often compared the late American king of the one-liners Henny Youngman, is well-known in Germany for his show-stopping talk show appearances and a national stage tour entitled: “Men Are Pigs. But So Are Women”.
