Ja, Nein & Doch

Tip for Tatort:

And then there’s the economical ‘doch’, an invention that should have been imported years ago. I say, ‘The world won’t end today.’ You answer, ‘Oh yes it will.’ A German answers, ‘Doch’, a four-letter contradiction instead of a four-word one. ‘Doch’ has an elegant finality about it—having the last word without spelling it out. ‘ You’re not going out dressed like that!’. ‘Doch.’ Try to argue with that.
