"How Broken Is Bayern Munich Midfielder Arturo Vidal?"

Inspired by one of Ottackon's post (who was once on my list of "you can trust his links" but no longer). "Broken" traditionally means "reduced to fragments" or "not working properly"
Dictionary definition of broken [source]
.

However, more interestingly, "broken" among newer generations of English speakers means:
Urban Dictionary [source]
A game object or facility that is too good to exist. It is so powerful that it is unbalancing and hence breaks the game. Every winning player has to use this to be competitive.

Indeed, Arturo Vidal is broken AF! :D

In Spain we say Maricón :)

I can't see the point behind "tistremmex" when we have "tixxemmex". It's just tixxemmex (to sunbathe) + tistrieh (to rest).

I also hate the word for emoji as well as all the different individual ones.

"Arjurant" is unnecessary but I accept that one because it's a common phenomenon in many languages that a slight variation in a word becomes so common that it forms a new word with the exact same meaning. In fact, arjurant wasn't coined deliberately according to the article.

EDIT: something that it brings to mind which I think might interest you, the word "ilma" (water) comes from a similar but slightly different phenomenon. The original word is in fact "ma" from Arabic (not sure what the exact word is in Arabic - Arabic-speaking users might help - but Google gives it as ma'an). The "il" prefix is the article "the" so it was "il-ma" (the water) until eventually the article became part of the actual word. So when we say "l-ilma" (the water) today, it's actually a double "the". The word we still use for hot water (misħun) still has traces of this history, as it's the result of a phonemic change over time from "masħun" or "ma sħun".
