comment Anything like the NYT crossword in German?
BTW, thank you both for the pointer to Um die Ecke gedacht. It may be above my head at the moment, but that's fine. I prefer too hard to too easy. It gives me something to aim for.

comment Anything like the NYT crossword in German?
@Wrzlprmft: the NYT puzzle ranges in difficulty from medium (most educated people would be able to get at least half the clues) to hellish (few if any native speakers would be able to solve them without prior exposure to such puzzles). The difficulty level increases gradually from Monday to Saturday. (The Sunday puzzle is special: It is roughly at a Thursday-level of difficulty, but it is bigger.) At the beginning I could only nibble at the easier (Monday) ones. I still found them fun and full of interesting tidbits. I gradually worked my way up to the skull-busting Saturday ones.

@Emanuel: I was be-blown away by that blog post; but please, pace yourself, or you'll zer-burn yourself out well before you make it to zu... Heck, you won't make it to hinaus...

comment How does one say “illustrated dictionary” in German?
Thanks for the pointer. This is the only example I know of so far of the kind of dictionary I'm looking for. I'm amazed that Amazon.de does not sell it. Maybe it's out-of-print, or there's just no market for it.
