v.— «My favorite new set of German words has to do with technology. Who knew that “e-mail” was an inseparable verb, evidenced by the past tense of the verb, “ge-emailed?” But be sure to separate the verb “download,” so when it’s done, you can tell me it’s “downgeloaded.”» —“A Denglish primer” by Elizabeth Book Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany) May 21, 2004.
