In German, different words can combine to form longer, more descriptive compound words. Are there any German compound words that have an ambiguous meaning?
A possibility I've thought of:
If "__" is a word (e.g. "Braut"), "sch__" is a word (e.g. "Schaufel"), and "ch__" is one as well (in this case "Chaufel"), __sch__(Brautschaufel) could be interpreted as "(__s)ch__" ((Brauts)chaufel) or "__(sch__)" (Braut(schaufel)).
I couldn't come up with any examples of this kind of word in German, though.
Any help is appreciated :)
