The first German word I learned was "feurzeug" ("fire" + "thing"). Keeping in this vein, Scottenfreude combines real German words to artfully create a dictionary of heretofore inexpressable feelings and experiences in English. The perfect gift for language lovers, trivia buffs, design nerds, and even Deutschsprachiger.
