"Weiner" and "Wiener": What is the difference?
Mon Nov 6, 2017 10:59pm

Wiener means Viennese (from Vienna) in German. Pronounced "VEE en er" = from Vienna.
Weiner means Winemaker in German. Pronounced "Viner", which makes sense since Wein means grape, vine, or wine in German.

Due to constant misspelling in English, BOTH words have come to mean (sausage) "from Vienna" in English, although the correct spellings and meanings are given above.
