I have read the story that Twain quote is from. It is out of The Awful German Language. If you ever find it anywhere, read it. It goes on a bit in one part about the illogic of how they use gender.he has a short story in there translated word for word into English. The whole thing is very funny

The word terrorist is spelled the same way in German and English. I was wondering if it means the same thing in both languages.

I am constantly amazed by the new and difficult to translate words that I have stumbled upon since moving to Germany. One that I can think of off the top of my head is schrottreif (pronounced shrot-rife). The dictionary translation is "Ready for the scrap heap". What a useful word!
