Yes, I saw this horror of ‘Dinglish’ on a poster in an S-Bahn station today. I just stared in disbelief at this latest example of stupid ‘new German’. Most of this rubbish comes from offices somewhere in which people in marketing and advertising ‘work’. This is really stretching the meaning of the word ‘work’.
I think they had a short study period in the USA when they were 18 and think they know all there is to know about ‘modern’ English! I have heard there are 13,000 examples of ‘Dinglish’ in the German language. I can well understand the ‘oldies’ who complain about this ‘Unsinn’ = nonsense!
Last Friday, I went to my Photoshop Gang led by Stefan. It was the first meeting of the new session. It started with tea/coffee and cakes and lots of talk about what we had all done over the Christmas break. A really nice hour!
Stefan had prepared some of our work from 2013 to make a calendar. The theme was historical images of Berlin – with changes! Here is the first page and then one for January. Have a good look…………have you noticed that what you thought was snow on the lawn of our building is in fact……………..waves from an ocean?
This was part of what we spent our year doing = changing images in ways that were/are not always obvious. We are continuing with this theme this year, but with more colour and/or changes in image. I shall be posting images each month as we create our new ‘works of art’ 🙂
