German English Words: A Popular Dictionary of German Loanwords in English

Welcome to humanlanguages.com, a site by Robb Knapp. Robb has had contact with many languages. As an American his mother tongue is (American) English. He learned a lot of Latin and a little French and German at school. While in the Peace Corps he spoke Swahili fluently. During a stay in Kuwait (before the first Gulf war) he got to know a little Arabic. Now he lives in Austria and speaks (Austrian) German fluently. Due to his ancestry he wants to learn Finnish.
