Is this supposed to be a pun? I looked up sauer and not only can it mean sheep but it can mean idiots. So it would be about village idiots.
Not supposed to, but if it helps you remember... :)
"Sau" isn't used all that often in that sense, so you'd need a bit of context to get the meaning across.
I'm hearing 'saurer' instead of 'sauer'... how is it really pronounced?
The slow audio has the correct pronunciation, while the default audio contains an "r" that shouldn't be there.
Lexin to the rescue:
go to http://lexin.udir.no
->enter sau in the search box
->click the speaker next to [sauen sauer sauene]
Now I'm even more confused. Duo makes it sound like "saurer", Lexin sounds like "sauther", and Forvo sounds like "sauer".
Do these sheep also eat books?
Ruminant librivores are a big problem for our rural libraries.
Wait a minute...what about the elephants?
They're livestock guardian elephants.
