Duden Publishes 'Words of the Decade' Volume

From http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/GIC/2011/07/20__Duden__PR.html

A special edition of the iconic German Duden dictionary has just been published on the 100th anniversary of its creator's death that features a selection of new words to enter the language over the past decade.

Aptly entitled "Unsere Wörter des Jahrzehnts. 2000 bis 2010 - Von Abfrühstücken bis Zwischenparken" (Our Words of the Decade. 2000 to 2010 - From 'Breakfast-Devouring' to 'Inbetween Parking'), it traces the latest trajectory of the German language and incorporates new terms that have in many cases only entered common parlance due to societal changes.

Read more about the new volume and words at http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/GIC/2011/07/20__Duden__PR.html and at http://www.thelocal.de/society/20110719-36391.html .
