Pronunciation: /ˈʃprɑːxɡəˌfuːl , ˈʃpraːxɡəˌfyːl/
1 Intuitive feeling for the natural idiom of a language: it’s not genes or culture but Sprachgefühl that sets the French apart from the Finns, and the Russians from the Romanians
1.1 The essential character of a language: each language has its own personality, or Sprachgefühl, which limits its speakers to a certain mode of thought
German, from Sprache 'speech, a language' + Gefühl 'feeling'.
Is it any wonder that speakers of English, the ultimate of language blending, lack a cohesive world view. The Sprachgefühl
of English is borrowed, not built-in.
Words are a game. Sometimes I play alone, but you are welcome to play, too.
