Post Reply What's your favorite German word???
Posted 12/21/08
Well, I have a four way tie between

"Verstopfung"
-consitpation

"Durchfall"
-diorrea

"schnurbart"
-mustache


And, of course
"donaudamphshifffartsgeslschaftkapitainkajutenschussleanhaenger"
-the captains keyring for the captains cabin on the ship that sails down the river Danube


Sorry if I got that last one a little off, I can never get it exactly right. Also forgive my dodgey spelling :)


So what are some of your favorite words?

@joker_dude: It's "Gesundheit!" (<- literal translated "Healthy!") or sometimes "Helf dir Gott" ( <- literal translated "God should help you!") ^^


"Massenkarambolage" is a serie of crashs... multiple crash would be a good translation i guess.

I looked it up on the dictionary and another translation would be "pileup" or "massive freeway pileup"


My fav word: Well ... thats a though one 'cause there are rather normal for me ... i guess "Danke (sehr)" is the word(s) i use the most.
