The death of the umlaut? (video)

[wp_youtube]iLXHHEojhVs[/wp_youtube]

Jööööö, my musing on the plight of the umlaut. Including proposing a campaign to make umlauted letters part of the alphabet proper! The group can be called LOLCAKAOPULIA (League of the Linguistically Concerned, Also Known As the Organisation for the Promotion of the Advancement of the Umlauted Letters In the Alphabet). I think it’s kind of catchy, don’t you?

  1. arme umlaut… nicht im echten alphabet? so ein scheiß!

    also, ich bin amerikaner und habe oft schwierigkeiten beim tippen – glückerlicherweise kann man das tastitur auf deutsch aufstellen (äöüß)

    magst du hamburg überhaupt? ich reise in ein paar wochen dahin und war noch nie da.

    liebe grüße aus den usa,
    niko

  3. I have to protest! Hüsker Dü a heavy metal band?! Nooo way. 🙂

    Oh, Hüsker Dü is actually a Danish phrase, but ok, it’s normally spelled without the dots.

    Reminds me of Snakkerdu Densk – a by now veteran Austrian indie band — http://familienalbum.sil.at/esnakker.htm
