Ger­man se­man­tics

Bangkok Post - - OPINION -

I don’t want to miss the op­por­tu­nity to tell you how much I ap­pre­ci­ated Alan Daw­son’s bring­ing up of the Ger­man ex­pres­sion “Backpfeifen­gesicht” in his Big Is­sue col­umn in the Sun­day, Feb 11 edi­tion.

This word is al­most as ex­tinct in col­lo­quial Ger­man to­day as the black pan­ther and the bark­ing deer in the wildlife sanc­tu­ar­ies in Thai­land.
