I need the word for when you suspect there is a German word for a complex, paradoxically diverging emotion (as there is a German word for everything), but you can't come up with it at the moment. Can you help, please?
Wordless in Weehaken
Thank you for your question. You're thinking of
f, tsyte'-vie-zuh frempt'-vort-fin'-doongs-shwee'-rig-kite-un
(temporary foreign/strange word finding difficulties)
Of course, you're also -- blessedly -- wrong.
If there truly were a German word for everything,
who'd need the Neologist anymore?
Incidentally, the medical term for what you're describing
isn't without its charms, either. Any neurologist will tell you
that you're suffering from: Temporary Germano-Dysphasia.
Mit herzlichen Grüßen,
