Who knows German?[edit]

"Der Kindestod" literally means "the child's death" ....

Wouldn't "the child's death" be der Tod des Kindes or perhaps des Kindes Tod? —Tamfang 04:02, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

It all means the same: Kindestod is "shorter" for "des Kindes Tod" which literally means "the child's death", but that kinda form isn't very common in german (although not incorrect). "Tod des Kindes" means "Death of the child", so, it's all the same, really. But there's one thing i really found interesting about the whole idea: There really is some sort of sudden, infant death without any obvious reason. It's called Sudden infant death syndrome and in German it's called "Plötzlicher Kindstod" (Sudden infant death), whereas, I think, "Kindstod" would be an old form of the word "Kindestod". That I'm not too sure of, though, my mother tongue is german and I'd rather use the form of "Kindestod", but I wouldn't regard "Kindstod" as incorrect. Definitely the genetive of "Das Kind" (The child) is "Des Kindes" (The child's; of the child). Anyway, it's funny cos I think that episode of Buffy might be a buffyverse way to explain that medical phenomenon.
