Loser's Guide to Life
A term that doesn't exist in English yet: the erikative. It means a verb used by itself in an online post as a sort of stage direction to convey what the writer is doing, like “grins” or “shakes fist” or whatever. In German it usually has no personal ending (seufz = sigh, for example), so it was just waiting to be explained as a particular verbal category. It is named for Erika Fuchs.
