German Word & Unword of the Year

Written By: Usree Bhattacharya on January 21, 2009 No Comment

The Gesellschaft für deutsche Sprache (the German Language Society) has recently unveiled the Wort des Jahres (Word of the Year):

Finanzkrise (Financial Crisis).

And the Unwort des Jahres (Unword of the Year) award (one that is “misleading, goes against fact,” according to my German friend) goes to:

notleidende Banken (Needy Banks)

The economy is on everyone’s mind.
