GUEST,Peter Laban German: Ein Schlosser hat ein' Gesell'n (14) RE: German: Ein Schlosser hat ein' Gesell'n 02 May 19


I am not so sure 'Gesell' shouldn't be translated as 'apprentice'.

It is certainly one meaning of the word, in Dutch 'gezel' is definitely an apprentice an as far as I know in German this is no different (and my old German dictionary agrees with that). It is perhaps a slightly archaic term.
