Word of the Week

German contains a lot of wonderfully descriptive words, easy to remember, because they are so colorful and, well, true! Who would not, for instance, love a “glow pear” (die Glühbirne, lightbulb) or put on her “hand shoes” (die Handschuhe, gloves), in winter?

 

The German online newsletter The Week in Germany in fact has a rubric for such words. Check it out! this weeks word is the “filling puller.”
