A Turkish word translating to "German". Still used in Turkey to simply refer to a German person. Within the Turkish diaspora in Germany, however, it has taken on a different meaning in recent years. "Alman" is now almost exclusively used by younger people in Germany to refer to people (not necessarily ethnic Germans) who fit the stereotype of a German person, that is: being mean with money / not being a hospitable host, taking everything too seriously, loving to ride bicycles, getting drunk on beer every weekend, having a terrible sense of fashion (socks and sandals), liking the famously bland and potato-laden German cuisine, harboring covert prejudices toward non-Germans, being a bootlicker to authorities and, sometimes, having blue eyes and blond hair.
"Alman" is not solely used by members of the Turkish diaspora in Germany but shared with every person in Germany who is of non-German origins. Sometimes ethnic Germans who have become aware of the privileges they have as a German living in Germany use "Alman" as a sarcastic self-descriptor to distance themselves from its implied stereotypes and show solidarity with their non-ethnically German peers.
Its corresponding, albeit less popular adjective is "almanhaft".
Person 1: "My neighbor Bernhard has called the cops on me last Saturday because my friends and I were listening to loud music after 10pm."
Person 2: "Ugh! You live in such an Alman-neighborhood."

Alper: "C'mon, you don't have to say thank you for everything I do for you. We are friends after all."
Jonas: "Sorry, I can be very almanhaft sometimes."

German people are called Almans (also Potatos) by Turks. Alman means German in Turkish, but is also used as miser (Geier) to describe German people.
Dieser Junge ist ein richtiger alman.

This guy basically asks me for food everyday, but never gives me anything when I don't have food with me. He's such an alman.

Alman is the Turkish word for german and has become a slang word in Germany. Alman describes the stereotypical attitude of some german people, however not all germans are automatically an Alman. Alman is the Person who texts you at 3 am only to tell you that they gave you 1 cent yesterday and you still didn’t pay it back to them. If you are invited in an Almans house don’t expect them to offer you any food or water. Instead be prepared to see them eating in front of you without offering you anything. A Alman also tries to be law-abiding at any costs even if that means he has to betray his best friend

Alman is the most handsome and amazing person you will ever lay eyes on. He is so talented is many ways you wouldn’t even think he’s real. You can’t get enough of his dark almost jet black hair that you want to run your hands through and his dark beautiful eyes that you dream of. He lights up any room with his smile and definitely stands out in a crowd. Everyone deserves to know Alman with his spiritual soul and charming unique traits. He’s also musically inclined and his personality is the most interesting.
Oh wow, did you see Alman today? I need him in my life!
