  • In German...

    stone = Stein

    precious stone / gemstone = Edelstein

    rock = (according to my dictionary) Gestein (but I'd just say Stein)

    Fun fact: "Rock" in German means "skirt."

    Good question! There are enormous differences between the two, however there are also enormous differences between the dialects and many words and phrases that you find in each country. (London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cornwall etc) Would that make it right to divide all the different counties/states and call the languages different? I reckon that it's one language that has mutated! x
