No other language beats German at having words for possibly every feeling and just plain everything.

While this is good for people who already speak German, it’s a pain in the neck for those trying to learn German as a second language. I could talk forever about German words and I won’t properly capture their peculiarity. So let’s look at some examples that truly show how weird and interesting some German words are.
