want and would like to have the same meaning, with would like to being more polite than want. When ordering in a restaurant, for example, we say "I would like a coffee."


Is potato a slang for something in German? (I feel that I've too specify that i mean anything with my question and not something specific to the perverted minds that may lurk in the dark corners of this place, as the amount of deleted comments may suggest)

At least, not among Germans.

Supposedly, some Turks use it as a slang word to mean "a German person". (From the stereotype that Germans eat potatoes.) I don't know whether that's true or not, though.
