Verteufeln - eine Wortbeschreibung (Verteufeln - a Word Description)
Krotkoff, Hertha
Unterrichtspraxis, 10, 1, 64-69, Spr 77
The word "verteufeln" is now in common use in German television broadcasts. Its popularity in current colloquial German is seen as due to the fact that it combines picturesqueness and vagueness. It is used, for example, in lieu of words for "condemn,""scold," and "disparage." (Text is in German.) (WGA)
