Keine Abkürzung May 15, 2003

Hab\' mal im \"New Oxford Dictionary\" nachgesehen:


kudos: praise and honour received for an achievement


Usage: Kudos comes from Greek an dmeans \"praise\". Despite appearances, it is not a plural form. This means that there is no singular form kudo and that use as a plural, as in the following sentence, is incorrect: \"he received many kudos for his work (correct use is \"he received a lot of kudos\").


Now we know why it\'s KudoZ points as opposed to just KudoZ...


Das \"z\" in \"KudoZ\" kommt von ProZ.com.

Eines der am häufigsten gebrauchten Wörter im Finnischen ist ja Kiitos = Dank! Das die alten Griechen also schon versuchten, Finnisch zu lernen. Wie ja so häufig, haben die dann Fehler gemacht, in dem Fall das Doppel-i wie \"u\" gelesen und natürlich konnten sie die finnischen Langvokale gar nicht durch die Zähne kriegen.

Kiitos? May 16, 2003

Und ich dachte immer, das meist gebrauchte wort in Finnland wäre \"Kippis\" = Prost! icon_smile.gif

Kippis ist altmodisch May 17, 2003

Natürlich beinhaltet Guenthers Beitrag eine Anspielung auf finnischen Alkoholmissbrauch. Doch tatsächlich ist das Wort etwas aus der Mode gekommen. Skål ist feiner.

Na, ich hab\' bis Anfang der 90er insgesamt etwa 5 Jahre mit finnischen Kunden zu tun gehabt. Im Laufe der Abende hat dann der \"Missbrauch\" meist dazu geführt, dass es für\'s \"Feine\" nicht mehr gereicht hat.
