An alternate definition of "fast" given here is "chamfer". What?

The reading of "fast" makes it sound like an F instead of a V sound... Should it sound more like "vast?"

No, it's supposed to sound like an English "f". The German "f" never sounds like an English "v".

Thanks Christian. That make sense, I guess I was thinking about W's sounding like V's. I should drink my coffee before studying German.

You were right, it's just the other way around. The German v's sound like English f's :)
