neutral  Ken Cox: Just out of curiosity, is 'letal' normally used in this sense in German? 'Lethal' means 'deadly', not 'dead' (not that I disagree with your translation here).

agree  MMUlr: letal in German: letale Wirkung, letale Dosis (--> tödlich), letale Läuse is not really German (and: immobilized, therefore lethal? ... very strange).
