German Word of The Day!

Hello, hello, long time no see, but then even fascinating bloggers need some time offline once in a blue moon 🙂 .

So let’s renew our bond with a fascinating German word I’ve come across in my work today:

FEHLERSTROMSCHUTZSCHALTER.

A modest 25-letter word meaning “fault current circuit breaker”.

Or how about this one:

PARKETTSCHLEIFMASCHINENVERLEIH.

30 letters! Now that’s something! I’ll let you guess what it means. Here’s a good German-English/French/Spanish/Italian dictionary by the way:
