Perhaps not language nerdery as such...but you know you've been living in Germany for a while when you return to England and your neighbour scolds you for trying to pick up some shelves left on the pavement outside her house, and you shudder to think of throwing glass, plastic and paper into the one bin.

When you feel like you are in heaven when you are visiting your brother's college and you find the Arts & Humanities section in the library, which contains several hundred volumes in many different languages, including Danish (that seems to be hard to find here in America).
Also- I happened to find a German volume from 1848- the pages were quite delicate and there were some differences in the spelling of some of the words. Man this was an awesome day!

You know you're a language nerd when you're planning your New Year's Eve party with your friends (who are all multilingual to begin with) and you realise that a lot of the games you're planning to play, you consider to be language-learning games. For example, the word association game (which will probably be played in French, German, Russian or a mixture of all three) the Multilingual Game, The Alphabet Game and another game I don't know the name of, or if it even has a proper name. You take a really long word and the object of the game is to make as many smaller words from the beginning word as possible. Does that have a name? My girlfriend calls it "margana" but I'd never heard that name before...

Also you know you're a language nerd when you realise a lot of the games mentioned above are inspired by our Multilingual Lounge!

Margana is an anagram solver: handy if you play a lot of Scrabble!
Scrabble nerd I am.

Wooow, thanks. I'm hosting a Christmas party in a few hours and you just gave me game ideas. I'm not sure if my friends are gonna like'em... even they're multilingual they're not language nerds! I'll try though, thanks!
