„Freiwillige Ausreise“ Unwort des Jahres 2006
So many words.jpg
Anfänger  Der sprachliche Fehlgrifffreiwillige Ausreise“ ist das Unwort des Jahres 2006. „Freiwillige Ausreise“ bedeutet, dass ein Asylbewerber Deutschland verlässt, um einer formalen Abschiebung zuvor zu kommen. Da von „Freiwilligkeit“ hier keine Rede sein kann, steht der Ausdruck nach Meinung der Jury „in einem schiefen Verhältnis zur Realität“.

Das Unwort des Jahres wird seit 1991 jährlich von einer Experten-Jury der Universität Frankfurt am Main gewählt. Die Aktion bildet das Gegenstück zu den Wörtern des Jahres, die jährlich von der Gesellschaft für deutsche Sprache (GfdS) in Wiesbaden ermittelt werden. Unwort des Jahres 2005 war „Entlassungsproduktivität“, die Steigerung der Arbeitsproduktivität durch Entlassung von Angestellten. Weitere Beispiele sind „Humankapital“ (2004) und „Kollateralschaden“ (1999).

In detail: Overruling Stoiber's problem bear.
Edmund Stoiber, Bavarian prime minister and leader of the political party CSU, has always been good for a laugh. The man who, according to a German comedian, cannot only think different thoughts at the same time, but also utter them simultanesously, is famous for his contorted speeches. Unforgotten his Transrapid talk in which he presented the advantages of a high-speed train connection between Munich station and airport by claiming you'd board the station itself. Just as well his short talk about his hobbies in that he accidentally declared one of his famous morning activities was killing flowers and he'd instruct the gardener how to do his wife. This year's famous was the problem bear. In May 2006, a brown bear named JJ1 immigrated to Bavaria; though the migration at first was welcome by animal liberationists it soon turned out that the disturbed animal was a threat to people, making him a "problem bear" in Stoiber's eyes. The sentence undoubtedly was amongst last year's favorites.
