The Chessbase motto is "Wissen Ist Matt". How does it translate into English? I was surprised to not be able to get the translation by googling it.
"Knowledge Is Matt"
And "Matt" is? Mate?
Matt,is my name...That would seem,however, a logical conclusion.
Knowledge is mate.
It's a wordplay with the german saying "Wissen ist Macht", which translates to "knowledge is might"
"Knowledge is power" would be a more accurate translation of "Wissen ist Macht", just as a hint.
Thanks, now it makes sense. "Knowledge is mate" by itself was a pretty lame motto.
Is there a dialect of German in which "macht" is pronounced "matt"? In other words, is there a dialect where these two words form a pun?
According to the interwebs, it means - knowledge is power
If there is such a dialect, I'm not aware of it. "Macht" and "Matt" just sound similar, there's nothing more to it.
If Fischer would played Karpov for the World Champion, who would win?
