    This has been done to absolute death on social media over the last few months.

    But anyway.

    “…words considered untranslatable to single-word English”, and yet the writer happily goes on to translate “tretar” as a single word in English: “threefill”.

      Yep. Just because compounds aren’t as commonplace in English as in German doesn’t mean they’re inadmissable.

    Nothing we haven’t seen a million times before, now with the added difficulty of trying to decipher that obnoxious scrawl.
