 Understanding Germany #5, linguistics

 
Published 2010-04-21

The Rinderkennzeichnungs- und Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz is a real, current law in Germany. Because of the way the language is structured it's also quite possible to listen to someone talk for 5 minutes before you get to the main verb and understand what hell he or she was on about. English speaking politicians can only dream of that kind of linguistic long-windedness.
