Pegida favorite 'lying press' is 'Un-word 2014'
'Lügenpresse' - roughly translated to mean 'lying press' and often shouted during Pegida rallies - was 'honoured' on Tuesday as the worst coinage of the year.
The 'Unwort' Jury, made up of four language scientists and a journalist in Darmstadt, announced that they had selected "Lügenpresse" as Unwort des Jahres (un-word of the year).
Each year since 1991, the jury has selected the most offensive, new or newly popularized phrase in order to "promote awareness and sensitivity of language".
