Like any language, German has grown and evolved over many generations. From Old High German to Middle High German to Middle Low German and Standard German, it's changed a lot over time. You'd think those changes would be helpful in making the language more clear and concise, but that's not always the case. In fact, some German words were clearly designed with the opposite idea in mind.
if you fancy yourself a bit of a linguist, or just someone who likes the challenge of stumbling over a 10-syllable word, maybe you have what it takes to nail this quiz. If you're not a native speaker, then it's definitely going to be a challenge. How long can German words get? Some have reached over 40 letters long. That could be a whole sentence in some languages. Heck, even a paragraph. Figuring out what a word like that means is going to take some skill and maybe even a little luck. But if you think you have the skills to handle some of these zungenbrechers and get to the bottom of this German kuddelmuddel then take the quiz and prove it!
