  • why does wordnik not have some of these words??????????????????????????????????

  • What word are you looking for? I just checked 40 different dictionaries and none have a word "backstein."

    On edit: it occurs to me that you are looking for "bock stein," a sturdy mug used for holding bock-style beer. No dictionary has that, either, but perhaps the individual words will do. Just click on either or both.

  • Also, "backstein" means "brick" in German. For what it's worth.

  • It's listed in MW3, defined as "a German cheese resembling limburger that is produced in a brick shape".
