    hibbelig

    Kontext/ Beispiele
    wenn man nicht mehr still sitzen kann, z.B. vor aufregung und man im ganze hasu rumhüpft und immer rum grustelt ist man hibbelig - aber was heißt das auf englisch?

    Man kann auf englisch sagen "You have ants in your pants". Oder "You are a little hyper." (wegen Hyperactive)

    hippelig is more like "to have ants in your pants"
    can be cause by hyperactivity, but doesn't in my head mean hyperactive (Hyperaktiv)

    hyper is used in the same way in the US and though derived from "hyperactive", does not mean you have that condition.

    @ selkie, yes, you are right, it can means the same
    I would say that hyper (hectic) was MORE SO than fidgety (restless)

    "it can MEAN the same"

    fidgety, restless, restive are close to hibbelig, hyper has different connotations

    noli: We had a friend who the Germans all called "hippel Jens", while we Americans called him "hyper Jens." It does not have different connotations in this particular usage.

    @ selkie, here again I would use fidgety for someone who is resltess (can't sit still), but hyper for someone who is more hectic (can't even sit down!;-)

    I have also heard the word "Antsy" used.
    (Sorry if the spelling of "Antsy" is incorrect, as it may not even be a proper word : )
