specgram commented on the word Überlinguistaffen
Literally "super linguist monkeys" in German—alluding to Nietzsche's Übermensch ("super-man") and the Infinite Monkey Theorem. The Überlinguistaffen represent the ability to perform "super-human" feats of brute force language processing—like solving word puzzles or answering obscure language questions—using computational approaches.
