actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
this is why german is the best
28-year old Cola the cat is set to celebrate a milestone birthday - turning 140 in cat years and being crowned Britain’s oldest cat. Until now a cat called Wadsworth, from Ravensden, Bedfordshire, was thought to hold the crown of Britain’s oldest living feline - after celebrating his 27th birthday this year. But Cola, who was born in in November 1985, trumps him by several months.
this cat is older than me. he’s probably older than you too. just think about that.
That cat bit death
Save The English Language!
The editors of Oxford University Press and the Oxford English Dictionary are concerned about all of the wonderful words in English that are ‘disappearing’ from the language from lack of use.
So, they’ve come up with a great solution: Adopt a Word.
It’s free to adopt a word, the words are old and weird and fun to use, you can buy a t-shirt with your word on it (only if you wish; it’s not a requirement), and you can choose your adopted word!
All you agree to, in adopting your word, is to use it! You can spray paint it on a wall, use it in a meeting, win a game of Scrabble with it, or even walk around town wearing a sign-board/sandwich-board with your word on it! (Or, you could wear the aforementioned t-shirt, if you want!)
I adopted the word foppotee, which is appropriate here, since only a simpleton wouldn’t want to adopt a word and help save the English language, right?
I know that this isn’t guard related BUT OMG YOU HAVE TO DO THIS! The words are fake but it’s still fun…
The words talk to you :3
