Post Titled: Offensism
Prime example of what I have come to call a typical (unwitting) European offensism or offensivism: "the exhibition was to bring a whole new concept of cultural and entertainment event to Lisbon, the city capital of a somewhat conservative and very illiterate country."
I come across this stuff constantly while proofreading at work... I could also call it a blunt/brutal Germanism I suppose...
