Well, dealing with the word "Angst" in English language is for a German quite difficult : It's the same word, but slight differences in meaning in both languages.
Angst in German is a kind of very strong fear, well, Angst. If you are scared to death because a truck is driving exactly into your direction and you're nailed town to the ground (and therefore cn't move), you'll surely feel Angst. Angst is what keeps a person from running across a motorhighway simply because of the high risk to lose live.
Angst in English seems to be a bit stronger to me, sometimes; I still have to figure out what it *exactly* means there. It's not only fear, but also seems to have to do with the word anger, but I'm not sure about that.
Anyway, it's one of the examples of German words wandered into the English language (like Pollen, for example). <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" />
