|German term or phrase: Münsterländer|
|name of a breed of dog in Germany|
the breed originates from the Münsterland, the district around Münster/Osnabrück, the closest larger city being Hanover.
In the English google pages I found
570 entries for MÜnsterländer and
3440 for MUnsterlander.
However, in my opinion, the poor dog turned into a Munster only because of lack of those dots!
In written language the correct original should be kept, while in the spoken word ...
well, the puppy will be a munsterlander, like in dusseldorf.
