Ever thought, There should be a German word for that? Well, thanks to the brilliantly original mind behind Schotta€™s Original Miscellany, now there is. Schottenfreude is a unique, must-have dictionary, complete with newly coined words that explore the idiosyncrasies of life as only the German language can. In what other language but German could you construct le mot juste for a secret love of bad foods, the inability to remember jokes, Sunday-afternoon depression, the urge to yawn, the glee of gossip, reassuring your hairdresser, delight at the changing of the seasons, the urge to hoard, or the ineffable pleasure of a cold pillow? A beguiling, ideal gift book for the Gelehrte or anyone on your lista€”just beware of rapidly expanding (and potentially incomprehensible) vocabularies.Locating a tiny reset button. a#39;ifa#39; (Dis)proving ... a#39;3 Plucking a chocolate from a sampler box. ia#39; Tapping for cavities. a#39;3a#39; Opening Tetra Paks. a#39;ia#39; Disentangling. a#39;37 Kinking a metal tape measure into a corner.
