In this episode:
A thorough look at the meaning of "ansehen" and how to use it for looking at things, watching movies and reputation.
ansehen, sich ansehen, das Ansehen, ansehnlich, die Ansicht,...
and welcome to our German Word of the Day. This time we will have a look at the meaning of the word:
Sehen means to see and an means at or on or to or in and we’ll go with… uhm… at this time. But ansehen is actually not so much the sum of its parts. The glamour is in the grammar. And that is not just a stupid rhyme by the way… those glamour and grammar were the same word once (don’t believe me? Check it here) . But then the Scots extracted the glamour, and ever since “grammar” has the appeal of eating sand. I don’t like grammar…it’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.
But just like Tatooine is nothing without sand, ansehen is nothing without grammar.
So let’s take a look at the different meanings and how to build them. Sounds good? Cool.
