German word of the day

The German language word of the day, found in the book "Hard-boiled Wonderland und Das Ende der Welt", but also used quite commonly, is... drumroll please...

"entgegengegangen"

which is the past participle of "entgegengehen", which means "to come to meet". German scientists are currently working around the clock to figure out how to fit another "g" in there, but even they admit, five out of sixteen letters isn't too bad.
