A new edition of Duden, (the standard German dictionary), has just been released. It includes 5000 new words.

This appears to be the longest the Germans have:

"Rechtschutzversicherungsgesellschaften"

"roughly meaning "legal insurance companies"

But it stiil does not come close to

"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch"

Translation: "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave".

Curled up in bed with a cup of cocoa, and my copy of Der Grosse Duden! Ah I remember it well!

"Das it girl" ROTFL.
Good to see we are infecting their language as the French and Americans infect ours!

It always used to amuse me to hear a German distributor of ours talking about "Der Profit und Loss Account."
