That means loser. In feminine form.
A German federal court has rejected a customer’s demand for her bank to include the feminine form of words such as “account holder” on official forms.
The Federal Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that plaintiff Marlies Kraemer hadn’t suffered any discrimination under German law from her bank’s use of the “generic masculine” on forms, a common practice. The German language adds a suffix to turn nouns into feminine form. In the case of account holder, “Kontoinhaber” becomes “Kontoinhaberin.”
Kundin bleibt Kunde: Klägerin unterliegt im Formularstreit.
