I'm guessing feedle otten is German. I know daaten is the date in German (my brother and two dear friends speak German and I am learning Dutch, which is similar to German), so I've gotten THAT far at least. Date in Dutch is datum instead of daaten. Nearly a homophone, and all with the same root as in English.
