Honestly, as a German I can not quite understand the obsession of the English speaking world with the question whether a word exists or not. If you have to express something for which there is no word, you have to make a new one, preferably by combining well-known words, and in the very same moment it starts to exist. Agree?

Deutsche Freunde, could you please create for me a word for the extreme depression I feel when I bend down to pick up a piece of litter and discover two more pieces of litter?

    • um = around
    • die Welt = world
  • die Umwelt = environment
    • ver = prefix to indicate something difficult or negative, a change that leads to deterioration or even destruction that is difficult to reverse or to undo, or a strong negative change of the mental state of a person
    • der Müll = garbage, trash, rubbish, litter
    • -ung = -ing
  • die Vermüllung = littering
    • ver- = see before
    • zweifeln = to doubt
    • -ung = see before
  • die Verzweiflung = despair, exasperation, desperation

die Umweltvermüllungsverzweiflung = …

This is a german compound on the spot master class and I am LIVING

#my german is still too basic for this but I desperately want a compound word for how much these compound words piss me off

  • das Monster = monster
  • das Wort = word
  • der Groll = grudge, anger, malice, rancor

der Monsterwortgroll = …

Monsterwortbildungsimitationsunfähigkeitsverzweiflungsgroll

  • die Bildung = formation
  • die Imitation = imitation
    • un- = un-, in-
    • fähig = able
    • -keit = -ility
  • die Unfähigkeit = inability

der Monsterwortbildungsimitationsunfähigkeitsverzweiflungsgroll = anger about the inability to imitate the formation of monster words

Linguistikfehdenhandschuhwurf

  • die Linguistik = linguistics
    • die Fehde = feud
    • der Handschuh = glove
  • der Fehdehandschuh = gauntlet
  • der Wurf = throw

der Linguistikfehdenhandschuhwurf = throwing down the linguistic gauntlet

*slowly backs in fear*

@shiplocks-of-love, @thatswhywelovegermany

Monsterwortbildungsunfähigkeitsangstverzweiflungsrückzugsecke

Monster=monster // wort=word // bildung(s)=formation

unfähigkeit (s)=incabability  // angst=anxiety

verzweiflung(s)=desperation  // rückzug(s)=retreat // ecke=corner

=the corner in which you retreat when you´re desperate because of your fear when being unable to form monster words

*eye twitch*

But what I want to see now is two germans arguing over the construction of one of these monster words.

@shiplocks-of-love I don’t think that will happen. The words make perfect sense. I think if German is your mother tongue you get a feeling for combining words, like a 

Monsterwortbildungsgespür

Monster = monster 

Wort = word 

Bildung(s) = formation

Gespür = intuition

;-)

Die Monsterwortbildungsunfähigkeitsangstverzweiflungsrückzugseckenbeleuchtung ist eine Linguistikfehdenhandschuhwurfskonsequenz!

So I’m sucked into the bbc’s Eat Well for Less again and it is honestly so wholesome.  This episode is a slightly older couple with grown children, one of whom is veggie and lives away from home.  Mum has never cooked him a veggie meal. She and buttery-biscuit-base man cook a veggie curry together and he asks her if the son would like it, she’s like oh I hope and then butter-biscuit-base says he is coming to try it and her face just lights up!  she’s just so excited to see him and that melts my heart.

Trump is losing Texas.  He is losing Texas.  This is not a drill, he’s so bad, he’s made Texas a toss-up.  This is huge.

Even better: Texas starts counting early votes and mail-in ballots, ahead of Election Day. 

Meaning they will likely be able to announce the winner of the state on election night. 

Meaning if Texas flips blue, it will be known on election night. 

Meaning Texas can basically stab Trump’s chances in the heart on November 3.

@Americans make it happen!

Do you remember when things used to just happen for the sake of it?  It is really sad to miss family gatherings and birthdays but what about the friend of a friend’s birthday with 40 other people in a pub built for 20 that also has other customers?  That shit was entirely non-essential but fun?

It is dark outside my window and there is an office block that always has all its lights on some distance away but there are trees in between that have lost all their leaves and when they sway in the wind the office block twinkles.  It’s kind of beautiful.
