In the German language, consonants are devoiced word-finally. That is, consonants where your larynx would vibrate no longer do.
Hund (dog) ends with a 't' sound (no voice), but:
Hunde (dogs) contains a 'd' sound (voiced)
blind (blind) sounds like blint
Laub (foilage) sounds like laup
So, guess what everybody calls me?
(well, 'cept the girl from Taiwan who calls me "bread" ... at least she got the ending consonant correct.)
