Makes me feel comfy again with using so much english words in german. Sleepy

Btw: its spelled re-al, not real in german Big Grin

I love the almost poetry of "schadenfreude", we would need so many words in English to say the same thing it would lose the impact!

Languages will assign names to concepts their culture finds repeatedly used. A bit like a function name in programming.

German sometimes just removes the spaces between the words that make up a concept.

Kabelsalat? You are really using Kabelsalat?

I have adopted the English version, works for me!

Was considering "computer noodles" but it might be behind the AV system.

And, Deesse, bet the French can beat you lot on anger over Anglic intrusions! Can't remember the word now but one got hot under the collar about an "English" intrusion that we pinched from French way back but was now not in common use.

No, we don't. That is an example of one of the "31 Phrases that English needs to steal from other languages" from the Cracked.com article I linked to.

So we haven't stolen it.



Yet.

How about Donaudampfschiffahrtskapitaensmuetze?

Good luck figuring this one out Tongue

"Danube steamship captain's cap"?

Very similar to Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän.

"Danube steamship company captain"

Which is itself a popular post on many 'longest German words' lists.

Way back in the days of Hollerith cards we bought a German "card verifier" with German instructions.

Instead of using "Germanised" English the descriptive name of the machine was a compound of (but in German if course) "machineforverifyingthetruthofcodeofthedatapunchedintothecards" or something very close.

As kids we used to make up fake German compounds:

"Woofersnatcher" - dog catcher
"Woofersnatcherwagen" - dog catcher's vehicle
"Woofersnatcherwagenhaus" - his garage

The French actually had an organization that maintained the purity of the language, but gave up.

This feature of the German language is extremely useful for understanding complicated concepts or processes. The "run away" sentences are also one of the reasons there were so many German philosophers and thinkers - you can have one sentence, a page long, with all the verbs in reverse order at the end, and the whole content of a page becomes one thought as you read. It helps that each noun has one of 3 genders - one can refer back using a pronoun and it is clear what is meant. When I learned to write in English, I had to learn to chop my thoughts up into very small segments.
