The third in her series of hybrid German grammar books, Danish artist Stine Marie Jacobsen continues her exploration of the German language with German for Lovers. ‘Educating’ readers about love and its relation to German grammar, German for Lovers playfully introduces how amorous communication would look like if it was to strictly follow German grammar rules and encourages us to make our own rules.

The German language has always been considered more close to math, efficiency and cold capital. The author invites us to take a deeper look into how German language hierarchies and syntax effect and shape our capacity to love. With both a ‘grammar love’ and ‘love of grammar’ – the book shares amusing misunderstandings and sayings heard in the German dating scene and shows us how to code-switch, gender-free and pidgin our German tongue. Does how we speak affect our emotional behavior? Are there words for emotions in German which do not have an equivalent in other languages, that are untranslatable? How do we love in German? With what consequences?

Ja genau!
Genau da, Oh ja!
