POST
Eric: Listen again to Tom's post.
Clara: Fuß eventuell gebrochen! Erstmal kein Fußball!
Eric: "Foot possibly broken! No football for now!"
Clara: (SLOW) Fuß eventuell gebrochen! Erstmal kein Fußball! (Regular) Fuß eventuell gebrochen! Erstmal kein Fußball!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Foot possibly broken!"
Clara: Fuß eventuell gebrochen!
Eric: This is a short statement giving the main facts. Especially men often seem to tend to use short statements like this. Listen again- "Foot possibly broken!" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Fuß eventuell gebrochen! (REGULAR) Fuß eventuell gebrochen!
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "No football for now!"
Clara: Erstmal kein Fußball!
Eric: This second statement is equally short and typical of social media. Not too much information, just the facts, and usually friends will then ask for more details. Listen again- "No football for now!" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Erstmal kein Fußball! (REGULAR) Erstmal kein Fußball!
Eric: All together, "Foot possibly broken! No football for now!"
Clara: Fuß eventuell gebrochen! Erstmal kein Fußball!
