sprachgefÃ¼hl is a German word that means: an intuitive sense of what is linguistically appropriate.
Thanks to my sprachgefÃ¼hl, the use of the word disconnect as a noun has become an agonizing insult to my ears. I have even coined a German word to express this pain: wortschmerz. Feel free to use it, especially around people who use disconnect when they’re not talking about a toaster.
I’m still trying to recall what word was previously used before the D word became fashionable. Disparity? Discrepancy? Divergence? Or how about gap?
Meanwhile, I’ve discoverd the website unwords.com, where I found the word cryiest, which I like. As in “that’s the cryiest movie I’ve ever seen!”
I know this makes me a hypocrite, but actually, according to this , I’m not. I just have a double standard.
