Do Germans/ other Europeans get annoyed at the misuse of ü all of a sudden by a load of American singers?? For example skrillex is using it a lot? Or even the ø or whatever by 21 pilots. Even though I know the ø isn't German and you might not be able to speak for other countries and languages. It was just an example. Thanks in advance, your blog is great :D

Well, I do know many Scandinavians get really annoyed when people use the ø instead of the o because of “aesthetic reasons”, since a) the pronounciations are different and b) the meaning of the word often changes (e.g. love =/= løve [lion]).

As for the ü, yes it gets a little annoying and also confusing tbh since ü just isn’t u, it’s a different letter with a different pronounciation and having it constantly misused in texts can sometimes really fuck with your mind.

So yeah, please don’t use æ, ø, å, ö, ü, ä, etc; just stick with the normal spelling.   

It’s absolutely hilarious when foreigners use æ/ø/å or ä/ö at random because they think it sounds the same. Breaking news: it absolutely doesn’t. But it does sound ridiculous when you pronounce it!

EDIT: OF COURSE I don’t mean people struggling to learn the language! I mean when people don’t even bother researching anything but just write English with the replaced letters to seem edgy.
