first_imgIt didn’t take long to notice that the Germans have no equivalent of the verb “to facebook”.So I thought I’d coin one. “Facebookieren.”It uses the conventional German trick of adding “-ieren” to pretty much any foreign word (cf. “abandonnieren”, “kommandieren”, “absorbieren”) to make it from a noun into a verb Germanise it (or should that be “germanisieren” it). So far I’ve only succeeding in getting one other person to start using this word. Hopefully my success will improve.Does anyone have any further suggestions for some new German coinages?last_img
