About the list

  • Please sort alphabetical! Nouns before verbs before adjectives.

  • Just one Line per english original word, translation and comment in a cell.

  • Optionalparts of the word are written in (round brackets), Context and comments are written in [square brackets] behind the word they're relating to.

  • Different terms are separated by Comma

  • Thanks to the German team, where we stole the layout.
