You're comparing Romance or Latin based languages with an West Germanic based language. Ofcourse it is totally different from any of these other languages x)

As far as I know English is reputed to be a west Germanic language too ;) Sometimes I'm not really sure about it.

To AMemoriam, that is a very valid argument, but even compared to other germanic languages it still has words that differentiate a lot. English is also a germanic language.

To the writer of the article. Science directly translated is just Wissenschaft even though naturwissenschaft also is used

"Gallinazo"? Is that really a German word? The word for hen or chicken in Spanish -and Italian- is "gallina", meaning coward or sissy too. So literally translated intro Spanish, "Gallinazo" would be "big chicken" :)

loomy, you should check out the danish numbers! From 50 to 90 they have numbers like "four and half fifths" (which is 94; 4 + "half of the fifth score and all the scores before that half")

threes = 3 scores = 3*20 = 60
five and threes = 65 = 5 + 3 score = 5 + 3*20

half fourths = "half the fourht schore" (pluss the whole ones before it) = 3*20 + 10 = 70

The danish are the only scandinavians that use those numbers, and the rest of us struggle understanding them. At least until we learn the "key" to deciphering them.

Differently from other Latin languages,
French is so Baroque...
70 = 60+10 = soixante-dix
75 = 60+15 = soixante-quinze
80 = 4*20 = quatre-vingts
90 = 4*20+10 = quatre-vingt dix
95 = 4*20+15 = quatre-vingt quinze
