It seems I have some German traffic from the German Scienceblogs site Frischer Wind where that blogger has linked to my post Flash Forward Gets Schrödinger’s Cat a Little bit Wrong in his post Robert J. Sawyer: Flash Forward.
It’s been more than 20 years ago since I took German in high school, so I won’t insult the German language by trying to use what little remains of my wortschatzie * to say hello to any German speaking visitors.
* For the English only speakers: Wortschatzie is a German play on words.
Wortschatz is German for vocabulary; it translates literally to “word treasure”. Schatzie is a German term of affection like honey in english; it translates to “little treasure”. Wortschatzie would basically be “little vocabulary”/ “little word treasure”. I tried it out on my native German speaking father, and he got it right away and thought it was witty.
