Are you proud of your mother tongue?

Are you proud of your mother tongue too?

Especially when looking at the beautifully designed Easter eggs, also in memory of the “Easter egg markets” at Gotha's “Schloss Friedenstein”, the experiences in and around Bautzen for Easter riding, the imaginative Easterly designed front gardens / windows / houses - such as the “summer win “Eisenachs - I come to the German language.

Texts in a foreign language are predominantly sung on the radio. These may be "cool". The respective messages are sometimes "fuck".

As wonderful as it is that young people speak different languages ​​and can thus communicate, live, learn and work in different countries. I think it's a shame that here in Germany people look for English words instead of their mother tongue in order to emphasize something in particular.

If something is “cool”, I am told that this is a compact statement that combines everything that otherwise only partially reproduces in individual descriptions.
Isn't it more likely that you call something “cool” because you can't think of two to three words from the diversity of the German language, which would not be general but particularly appropriate?
Let's look at "happy"This is how this word unites fjoyful, happy, happy, happy, cheerful, merry, amused, satisfied. What exactly is the reason for being "happy"? You could say it so clearly in German! Then why not just do it?

Of course, there are generalizations in the German language too, if you think a small child is "cute", for example. Basically everyone knows that it is a good label. But it is just as striking. You just don't take the time, you don't have the right words to describe briefly why and what you find particularly noteworthy about the child.

Many are rightly proud to be German and forget that this also has to do with the culture of the mother tongue, which one should not disregard or even undermine.
Other peoples often show so much pride in their country, their cultural heritage and their language that I wonder where and how do Germans show their pride as a match.

A very important part of my life is shaped by my language. Respecting them and wanting to use them in their diversity is not only a great pleasure, but also a piece of respect for those with whom I speak, to whom I would like to express my opinion vividly.

Yes, I am proud of my German mother tongue.

(That has nothing to do with the fact that even in my youth I was sometimes frightened to hear my voice on tape. Far from standard German! But that was and is part of my unmistakable personality. Today, after more than 70 years, I am I'm a little proud of that too.)
