Why do Americans not bother looking up how to actually pronounce "Vater" when making the "vader = father in German" comparison? After all, it's pronounced almost the same as in English, just with a hard 't', yet I've not once heard it pronounced like that. It's always vah-der, with a soft 'd'.


I don't get that either, the spelling is the same but the pronunciation is totally different.
