Not only on the size of words, but sentences, too Wink The habit of putting the subject and verb at the opposing ends of a sentence, while also embedding a truckload of additional clauses and sentences in-between, regularly drives translators nuts Wink

Recommended read for those interested in more details: Mark Twain's essay "The awful German language" Wink

Btw., there is a german word that describes the fear or phobia of (using) long words:

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobie

I do fully agree - German IS an awful language. It's just way more complicated than it needs to be.
