Equal words in German and in English

The written form is the same as in English

Here is a list of words that are written in the very same way both in English and in German. The pronunciation is more or less different, of course. You can find the words here in alphabetic order. The nouns are listed with the definite article and sometimes with the plural form, too.

The list is not full. More words will be added if I find some. If you know more words like this, please tell me.
