Note that the word "Pfeilflieger" is just the German for a swept-wing aircraft. Most of not all of Lohner's designs were pfeilfliegers, as were several aircraft built by other companies.

The German Habit of capitalising the initial Letter of all Nouns can confuse the unwary English Speaker.

Yet, it is the only feature that Mark Twain approved of (see the "Awful German Language").

"The German Habit of capitalising the initial Letter of all Nouns can confuse the unwary English Speaker."

Totally OT, but perhaps an interesting example, and not worth to start a new thread :

- "Der gefangene Floh" (The caught flea)
vs
- "Der Gefangene floh" (The captive fled) :rolleyes:
