"Yes, thanks, man."
Does German actually use "Mann" as an interjection?
btw, in English this should probably be "Yeah, thanks, man"
Native english speaker, but I'm in my 5th year studying German, and hear about this and decided to check it out. I believe that the proper phrase would be along the lines of, "Mensch, danke!" i have never heard "Mann" being used in this context. My German professor is a native German speaker, I might have to ask her.
But I have listened "Mann" as an interjection on TV. I live in Germany and I watch to much TV xD... I've heard that.
I"m a native speaker and I've never heard "Mann" used that way. BTW is there a way of reporting mistakes where you can add a comment, and not just check a box?
I'm native German and agree that you can say this. However, it is a newer and very informal expression and usually it's (young) men saying that among each other. Probably you wouldn't necessarily say "Ja, danke, Mann!" but rather "Danke, Mann!" [or even "Ey, danke, Mann!"]
Like I said, it's informal and you wouldn't say that to a stranger or your teacher. :-)
I think that at such a basic level, this this is a poor example. It could easily sound rude when said to a waiter or hotel worker.
