this is a german word: Zug=move, zwang=forced
there are some other German words in English. Let me know if you know others:
Schadenfreude (enjoyment of another's misfortune)
Zeitgeist (spirit of the time/age)
There seems to be a pattern here: compound nouns, not too long, giving succinct expression to a useful concept.
"Sehenswurdigkeit" ("thing worth seeing", i.e. tourist attraction / place of interest) is a useful concept, but it seems the word is too long...
