How many words do you know and understand yet have never actually been spoken outloud by yourself? Take a minute to think about words that you've never said despite having heard them on the news, read them in books etc...
for the first time in my life today i said the word schadenfreude and in a sentence at that. i was well pleased with myself...
so go for it! say a word for the first time ever! impress your work colleagues with your newly realised vocabulary!
"Reik-link-lauf-Schlag-bore machine" is a good ( German ) word. It means - sort of- "hammer drill" in English. Now I own a Bosch Hammer Drill but Bosch is a German ( or Swiss ? ) Company so its a "Reich-link- louf-Shlage-borh machine". The Germans are good at words like that. Its got a good meaty sound to it, Hammer drill sounds tinny!
I've lost the instruction sheet for the drill now so my apologies for spelling.
