Etymology[edit]

Apparently wordplay based on German Walddeutsche (Forest Germans). The Polish word Niemcy (Germans) comes from a word meaning "mute ones; ones who cannot speak (a Slavic language)", so in calquing the German word Walddeutsche (Forest Germans), the Poles used głuchy (deaf) rather than głusz (wood) to create a compound meaning "deaf-mutes".

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ɡwu.xɔˈɲɛm.t͡sɨ/

Noun[edit]

Głuchoniemcy m pers pl

  1. the Walddeutsche
