No other language beats German at having words for possibly every feeling and just plain everything. German’s shady technique of compounding nouns gave it a unique vocabulary that’s just a joy to use. This is why most of these words are hard to find in other languages and the best way to know what they mean is to translate them. But still, a lot of their meanings get lost in translation. 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. You don’t believe this? Here 30 hilarious reasons why German is the worst.
Compounding also gives German an edge to have the longest words possible. Sometimes, some words can be ridiculously long. We have prepared a list down here that summarizes these kinds of words. Take a look and let us know what you think.
