Words of the week

  • Talking amok – if you cannot persuade your enemies with arguments, just talk until they fall dead from the chair.
  • Weihnachtschristen – Christmas Christians, chrétiens de Noël – particular religious species found mainly in the Northern Hemisphere between the 24th and 26th of December. Word read in “Die Zeit”
  • “Das Eichhörnchen ist Geborgenheit” – Learning German is mignon. 
  • “asexué linguistique” – I do not know if Belgium elects the “Unwort des Jahres” – the worst word of the year. If yes, this one which I found in an article of L’Echo would be my absolute favourite.
