comment Does “Jawohl” carry Nazi connotations?
I guess jawohl is much more often used as an interjection or at least the first word in a sentence, at least the Google Ngram of capitalized Jawohl shows much greater frequency than lowercase jawohl.

comment Did German borrow any words from Old Prussian?
Thanks for providing some important missing information! But the beginning of your post makes it seem like you're correcting a misunderstanding between Prussia and Russia in the other posts where no such misunderstanding occurred.
