The German-language dictionary of the French language has no official translations for the words “nigga” and “nigger.”
A study by the German dictionary published in the German weekly Der Spiegel last month concluded that it doesn’t have any official words.
The study said that in many cases, the meaning of the words doesn’t match the meaning in the language and that the word “niger” doesn’t mean the same thing in German as it does in English.
German authorities are not calling for an overhaul of the dictionary.
The dictionary was created by the Free French movement in the 1970s and has been published in many countries including Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Belgium.
The group is known for its outspoken stance on issues like racism and xenophobia.
