Favourite German words

If I may correct you, it's "oberaffengeil" (not über).

 

The next level is "oberaffentittengeil".

inventing or experimenting with words

As i see you are doing it right to learn languages by experimenting, i did the same. :D

 

by the way " why i mentioned the Grimms' fairy - tailes" It is because i started reading them to my little daughter. But then i realised that that makes me scared and i stopped reading them.

I know quite exactly how 1 meter - long words make people scared. Unfortunately, Germans love them. :blink:

Wladi:I agree with all your points.Mind you,one problem I had when my daughter was young and I read her fairy tales was that I fell asleep - not her! :D

God, I love it when German pubs advertise "Life-Music".

 

Probably like "world music", just different.

This is my new German word of the day, and I just love it. It says so much about Germany in just 6 syllables.

Do fairies have tails? Or do you mean tales? ;)

To the reader who complained about the Germn pronunciation of the English "W":

 

I love, i.e. can't stand, it when German pubs/discos etc. put up signs offering "life music". (Is that anything like "world music"?)

 

To starlite:

 

You need to lighten up & be a bit more liberal. Let your kids do any damned thing they like as long as they have your permission.

Favourite word is "Souverän".

 

Can't get my head around what the word "Wellness" is supposed to mean although it sounds good.
