Where do they call those Reibeplaetzchen?
By C N Heidelberg 22:18 language
Those of you who speak or just dig German will appreciate the maps at this site, which show usage information for various terms for the same thing. The list of maps is in the left column. For example, this is the map for what we boringly call Kartoffelpuffer, and I heard people in Mainz call Reibekuchen (according to the map they weren't locals, though), and the Regensbloggers call Reiberdatschi. English speakers: we call them potato pancakes or latkes!
