Proximity Infatuation

3. november 2008

Fra Urban Dictionary har jeg hentet dette begreb, som jeg i den seneste tid er blevet mere og mere opmærksom på…

Og forklaringen:
Proximity Infatuation
An infatuation that develops out of close-quarters operation with another person.

“I swear I’m in love with this girl from Philosophy class. I’ve been sitting next to her for like three weeks and it’s obvious we’re meant for each other.”

“Well do you know anything else about her? I bet you’ve just made up a life outside of class for her in your head. You’re getting caught up in a short-sighted proximity infatuation man, just wait a couple weeks after class is over and you won’t even remember her.”

Ööööhhh…?

Hvad siger man, når man skal stave til noget hvor bogstavet Ö indgår???

Hedder det “O med omlyd”?
Siger man “tysk Ø”?
Eller “O-med-to-prikker-over”?

Findes der en officiel dansk betegnelse for et bogstav der officielt ikke findes på dansk?

Samme spørgsmål kan så videreføres på ü, ä, ñ og så videre..
