Another fun fact: it is called fatherland¹, but mother tongue². Why? It's obvious: to confuse the poor souls who have decided to learn this unspeakably³, complicated⁴ language.
¹ Vaterland (german, lit. fatherland, translates to home country or native country)
² Muttersprache (german, lit. mother tongue, seldom: native tongue)
³ Sorry, I couldn't resist. I just love flat jokes.
⁴ I know, there are more complicated languages. Still not the easiest to learn to.
