Some of My Favorite Words in German

German is such a brilliantly mis-represented language. How a language with words like Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän could be considered long-winded or aggressive is just beyond me.. sie ist doch so ‘ne schöne Sprache.

Here are my top ten favorites:

1. Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebswerkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft

Association for subordinate officials of the head office management of the Danube steamboat electrical services. (79 characters.. woah!!
2. Kummerspeck

Noun for weight gained from emotional over-eating. Literally: grief bacon. (Awesome)

3. Mauerbauertraurigkeit

The inexplicable urge to push people away. Literally; wall-builder-sadness.

4. Kühlschrank

Fridge. Literally: cold wardrbobe. (Makes sense.)

5. Weltschmerz

Mental depression or apathy caused by comparison of the actual state of the world with an ideal state. Literally: world pain (or being a miserable sod, whatevz).

6. Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz

Cattle marking and beef labeling supervision duties delegation law (YEAH! or should I say.. JAAA!).

7. Backpfeifengesicht

A face that deserves to be punched/slapped. Literally: Cheek whistle face.

8. Futterneid

A feeling of jealousy about food, particularly that feeling one gets when one feels the food of another is superior. (This reminds me of that episode in Friends when we learn that JOEY DOESN’T SHARE FOOD.)

9. Dreikäsehoch

Word for a short person. Literally: three cheeses tall. (This is for all my fellow vertically challenged friends.)

If you’re feeling a bit perplexed by all these strange words, then you’ll like this last one…

10. Kuddelmuddel

A word for confusion, chaos, catastrophe, a muddle

„Der Schwarzfahrer“ von Pepe Danquart ist ein ebenso unterhaltsamer wie nachdenklich stimmender Film zum Thema Ausländerfeindlichkeit, der mehrfach auf Festivals ausgezeichnet wurde und 1994 sogar den “Oscar” für den besten Kurzfilm erhielt. Die Geschichte spielt in einer vollbesetzten Berliner Straßenbahn, in der sich ein junger farbiger Mann neben eine ältere Dame setzt, die sich daraufhin griesgrämig über Ausländer brüskiert, ohne sich jedoch direkt an ihren dunkelhäutigen Sitznachbarn zu wenden. Jedoch meint sie mit ihren Beschimpfungen ganz offensichtlich ihn. Gleichwohl reagiert keiner der anderen Fahrgäste auf ihr indiskutables Verhalten. Nach einiger Zeit steigt ein Schaffner zur Fahrkartenkontrolle hinzu. Als die ältere Dame nun ihren Fahrschein zückt, dreht der junge Mann kurzerhand auf seine Weise den Spieß um…
