Prefix Advent Calendar – 19

Shaving, waxing, peeling – the proper counters to today’s word :)

behaaren

A verb like a promise to many balding men. But no matter how much caffeine you put into your shampoo – you cannot really actually put hair where there’s to be none and so the itself is never used. Only the ge-form is – for hairy chests, backs, shoulders, feet – everything except the head. Genes, they’re ironic sometimes.
unbehaart – without hair
die Körperbehaarung – the body hair

  • Thomas legt sich an Maria’s stark  behaarte Brust.
  • Thomas lays his head on Maria’s super hairy bre… wait a second…. EWWWW

Hi Emannuel, Im a big fan of ur blog. I was wondering what kind of intensifier is commonly used with behaarte, because when I tried searching for “stark behaarte” I got nothing. And for that matter I was windering if you knew any good resource to learn the collocation of intensifiers and adjectives/adverbs in German. Grüss aus Lybien :-D

Thank you so much, I’ll check my safesearch next time :-D . One more question, can you do a lesson on the idiomatic uses of “dabei” and “dazu”, like “da ist nichts dabei”. I couldn’t find anything comprehensive about that eventhough they’re all over the place.
Lol I thought it was spelt like that in German. An older spelling in English is “Lybia” which looks weird.

And one would think behaarlich is also hair related, but it means insistent… oh german..

Yep. I spent ages thinking insistent was behaarlich and still made the typo :p Then I read your article and it finally came to me lol
