Is it just me --

or does the word "archbishopric" just look wrong?

In my German for Reading Knowledge course, we get to translate such mellifluous passages as, "By 968 the city had already become an archbishopric, and the Archbishop of Magdeburg oversaw five Catholic bishoprics."

Archbishopric. Archbishopric. It looks weirder and weirder the more you write it.

It does look weird. It's an odd word. And I took a German for Reading Knowledge class, too--I *so* remember fascinating phrases like that. :)

Want to know more about Magdeburg? Cause let me tell you, there's more that you ever want to know, right here in good old Jannach and Korb.
