  • Yes, I agree. For years I have been wondering whether there is an English term for a term we use to describe what we did each weekend to save money when we were still pupils and did not have much money. Finally there is one but I must admit, I am quite disappointed. We use the term ‘vorglühen’ (at least in Austrian German, don’t know about German German) and this word is the same word to use when describing what drivers of diesel cars need to do before they can start the engine. It is somehow more to the point, I would say….

  • I and a lot of people in my surrounding use the word pre-drinking, but by none of us it is supposed to mean something that comes before drinking. It means to drink before something and can be the same thing as pre-partying which means partying before a party.
