I wonder why 'Germany' has so many different names: de: Deutschland (/dOjtSland/; I know how to pronounce it, just not sure how to represent the diphtong) jp: Doitsu (from the german pronunciation) dk: Tyskland (|y| being a high front rounded vowel, like german |ü|) en: Germany pt: Alemanha (Spanish, French and Italian have similar forms) What else?
