The OH and I just realized...

...that the word "hallelujah" and the word "schadenfreude" rhyme and scan the same.

Possibilities are left up to the imagination of the reader.

I can't make it work in the accent I use either ... now I want to hear you saying them so that they rhyme.

I hear them scanning the same, but not rhyming.

However, for writing filks, that's all that's necessary.

the eu in german is pronounced like english oi, so I don't see quite how they rhyme (I suspect you might be confusing eu with ue, which would be the english transliteration of ü, which would be a near rhyme to the lu in hallelujah), but they scan hilariously the same -- thanks for the chuckle

umm. now i really want to hear you pronounce those, because they neither scan nor rhyme in actual german. :)
