Attention, rhetoric question ;) Actually i came upon suboptimal and thought over its meaning and origin. Is it a anglicism, german euphemism, slang... Because the meanings i get are quite contrary:
from shite to not perfect (thats the meaning i had in mind). Seems to have quite contrary meanings in English and German or a bit arbitrary machine translations (actually makes me think of the quality of translation dictionaries). Is there a explanation?
Especially i like the urbandictionary version as its voting ranks how people actually mean it when using. Please give a source when arguing what the meaning and its origin is.
Basically suboptimal means nothing you couldn't say with already existing german or english words. I read it firstly in german article. But nowadays it seems to be common term.
