My native tongue is french and Groß is pronounced exactly the same as 'grosse' in french which means : fat (for feminine stuff) and mutt sounds pretty much like 'motte' which means lump or chunk (like a lump of grass)... So whenever i hear Großmutter i can't picture this image of a nice old lady with a plate of out-of-the-oven muffins in her hands... all i can think about is just a big fat lump of whatever... I think i would burst out laughing if a woman ever comes to me with a big smile on her face saying 'Ich bin eine Großmutter'
