    emotional range of a teaspoon

    Comment
    Stammt aus dem neuen Harry-Potter. Ich suche eigentlich gar keine Übersetzung... Mich interessiert nur, ob es tatsächlich so was wie eine Redewendung ist, oder *nur* eine - wie ich finde - sehr süße Beschreibung.
    Hat das schon mal jemand gehört?

    Never heard it myself, but it belongs to a group of expressions that are often adapted as the speaker sees fit. Could just as easily have been "... of a laptop" or "... of an envelope", but the quoted one is rather good!

    Thanks Kevin, thought it might be something like that. But it reallly is rather cute, isn't it?

    It may interest you to know that an entire website is devoted to the translations of Harry Potter into German: http://www.hpgurken.de.vu/. This website has some visibility, for example it is linked to from this About.com site http://german.about.com/library/weekly/aa0111... which also goes on to talk about other aspects of Harry Potter in German.

    If you are a Harry Potter fan, you may want to check them out.
