The German language is sometimes quite strange.
Today in my German lesson I learned what the various pieces of clothing are called.
For instance, the word for "suit," meaning matching slacks and jacket, is der Anzug.
But then I discovered that der Anzug is used only when talking about suits for men.
Suits for women are called das Kostüm.
My tutor didn't understand why I found calling what women wear to work a "costume" a little insulting.
