Tips to remember the Russian word:
– "немецкий" (nemeckiy) resembles the English word "Nemesis", helping to link it to something foreign or different, much like how a different language might feel.
– The prefix "нем" can be associated with imagining someone as "mute" or unable to speak your language, which historically ties to the meaning of "немец" (foreigner).

Explanations:
– "немецкий" (nemeckiy) is the adjective form of "немец" (nemets), which means "German" (a person from Germany).
– The word is derived from "немец" which historically meant "mute," used to refer to people who spoke a language incomprehensible to Russians.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– "германский" (germanskiy): This also means "German" but is often used for formal or academic contexts, such as "Германская филология" (German philology).

Alternate meanings like slang:
– There are no widely used slang terms that derive directly from "немецкий." However, the word "немчура" (nemchura) informally and somewhat derogatorily refers to Germans in a collective sense.

Examples of sentences that use it:
– Он изучает немецкий язык. (On izuchayet nemeckiy yazyk.) — He is learning the German language.
– Эту книгу перевели на немецкий. (Etu knigu pereveli na nemeckiy.) — This book was translated into German.
– У меня есть друг, который прекрасно говорит на немецком. (U menya yest' drug, kotoryy prekrasno govorit na nemeckom.) — I have a friend who speaks German perfectly.
