A friend described her university studies to me as "[major] unfertsch". I can't find this word in LEO or either of my dictionaries. I assume it means she didn't finish, because as far as I know, she didn't.
But is there any other nuance to the word's meaning? Does it mean she hasn't finished, but could go back and finish later? Or that she has dropped out completely? I feel like it's an overly personal question to ask her directly.
