So what is the word for "or", it might help to replace that in our minds.
Tak! I'll concentrate on the last letter instead of the first letter.
Getting this wrong makes perfect sense because the West Germanic languages all use very similar words for or:
English: or, German/Yiddish: oder, Dutch: of.
The Scandinavian languages are using an etymologically unrelated word for and which in their case unfortunately has developed to sound similar:
Archaic English: eke, German: auch, Yiddish: oykh, Dutch: ook, Danish: oc, Swedish och.
The meaning of this word in the West Germanic languages is also.
Hmm. Irish speakers are luckier there - our word for "and/&" is "agus". We only have to remember the first syllable of "agus" to get "og". As Danish people seem to pronounce only the first syllable of "og", it all helps to speed things up.
Hahaha. I learned Spanish before this so now I am confusing Or with O and Og.
I learned French before where "et" is "and," and so the "et" in Danish screws me up!
I know the feeling. My small knowledge of German keeps butting in and making me do silly things. Like putting a T at the end of brod >_>
Hun =honey. Han = Hand Thats how i remember it. It has nothing to do with word itself but...
Try Hun= hunny (like you'd call your wife) and Han= Hans the male name
I still keep getting a "typo" for spelling "goodnight" as one word. http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/goodnight
