          We do the same in Norwegian, and there actually is a difference. If there's a space between the nouns, there's also a slight pause, and the tone and rhythm of the words change slightly.
          A somewhat common grammatical error in Norway is to not combine nouns (called orddelingsfeil, which ironically is a combination of three words), and a common joke when people make this mistake is to say it like it's written, with a pause between the words and slightly different intonation.

            Reminds me of the running joke from the 1970s comedy "Barney Miller", about a cop with some unspellable-to-Americans Polish name. People would ask him how to spell it, and he'd reply, "Wojciehowicz, you spell it just like it sounds!"

            Thing is, Polish is spelled exactly as it is sounded out -- if you know how to speak Polish. So the joke line makes perfect sense to a Pole in all seriousness, but Americans just stare in bewilderment since it sounds like "Wojohowitz" to us.

              Well, there are languages that are phonetically very similar to how things are spelled. Norwegian is like that with a few exception, as is Japanese. Intonation varies a bit, but it generally reads like it's spelled.
              I can't speak for Polish, given that I don't speak the language.
              English is certainly not like that, and you just have to memorize all the word, because the phonetics don't line up with the way it's written.

                Polish is like that, plus it also has constant stress (always on the penultimate syllable). Other Slavs say it makes us sound like robots.

                That's because English simply steals words from other languages, particularly the ones that *don't* use phonetic spelling, plus half the languages also pronounce letters differently. On a more positive note, however, that's also what makes English useful as a lingua franca, beyond just the RN and USN dominating the seas for 200+ years: it's nigh-infinitely adaptable and anyone, anywhere can potentially contribute a new word to it.

                yeah, english is a naturally evolved esperanto: clunky, but easy to learn.

                The french should not be butthurt about it given the huge amount of their words there.

                Many languages are adaptable and borrow heavily from other languages, with Latin having had a massive influence on all western European languages, as far as I'm aware.
                As for English being a useful lingua franca, I don't think the language itself matters at all. It's simply a result of English and American influence, particularly after WW2.
                I'm Norwegian, and before the war, I believe German was the most commonly spoken second language here. If not, it at least rivaled English.

                English used to be like that too... because it had extra letters, just like how Germany has ä, ö, ü and ß.

                But at some point it decided to get rid of those extra letters (such as Þ, which is the sound "th" does in English or Æ which would have been the A for apple) and just hammered other letters with a different but similar sound into it's place.

                It's more that letters and combinations of letter can sound very differently based on what word it's used in, like "though" and "tough", or that they simply make no phonetic sense in relation to the letters used, like "cake" being pronounced "keik".
                English also has strange vowels. Even when you say the vowels in the alphabet, they're not a single sound, but consist of multiple vowels.
                A is ei
                I is ai.
                Y is wai.
                In languages where the phonetics match the alphabet, it's a single sound. Japanese is a very good example, so if you look up their five vowel sounds, you'll hear it's a single sound, and it's the same sound when it's used in a word.

      I love the Gepard too but there is simply no space for a cold war SPAAG on the modern battlefield. C-RAM can do near-field protection just as well, more efficient and can even shoot down mortar rounds, artillery and missiles. For everything else you have MANPAD's and ultra-short range Anti Air missiles. It's just so much better on the logistics and upkeep compared to a Gepard. Fucking stick the tube in or slide a missile in the launch platform -> done. No painting graphite on the shells, no fucking reloading the belts, nothing.

            It most certainly has cultural roots in allied postwar reeducation and the cult of german guilt. Especially the total abandonment of strategic thought in german politics. Geostrategy, that's what nazis did and therefore evil. Germany must act friendly to everyone and treat them as a nonthreat and give money if they want. That we have to be unfriendly to the one to be friendly to the other simply did not compute for the german public or the political class.

          Yep, it calculates the speed and direction and adjusts. Not really needed that much with AHEAD ammo, but with the old Gepard ammos (FAP, I think) you need to actually hit the target directly.

      You're both right and wrong.
      The Gepard has a radar with a very good tracking feature for the guns and 35mm proximity fused rounds. However, the range is limited. You know why all the gun based defense systems of the Cold war vanished outside of Russia? Because missiles have much longer range.
