In the movie Das Boot, the crew address the captain with a word I don't understand.
I think it may be "Kaleun", which I assume is short for "Kapitan Leutnant".
Am I right? Is that a real word?
"Kaleun" is a real abbreviation, I'm not sure if this makes it a real word ;)
And yes, it means "Kapitänleutnant".
