ECJ (European Court of Justice)?

Seconding 'ECJ' or at least the full 'European Court of Justice' name as type-ins. It's a bit silly that the actual official name of the institution doesn't work now.

ECJ should definitely be accepted - it is the most commonly used name/acronym for it here in Europe, hence it also was the first thing I tried (as a European lawyer).

Is Letzeburgesch not accepted? (or did I accidentally spell it as Letzeburgisch?)

And for other commenters no I am not trying to be fancy, yes it ís the first thing I came up with and no Luxembourgish didn't cross my mind. Only thought I had was I must be spelling it wrong but couldnt figure it out. Also tried Letzebuergisch

we're not being fancy, that's how the language is called.

If I wanted to be fancy, I'l call it Moselle Franconian

Your so fancy, you even put an accent over the "i" in "is" to show that the "is" is meant to be stressed.

I'm so fancy that I will point out there's an apostrophe and an E in "you're".

I agree... the second one I tried was Luxembourgeois (also not accepted). I can't help feeling that "Luxembourgish" is just a word made up for people who can't be bothered to spell Letzebuergesch. Which, to be fair, could pardonably be most people

I mean, since it's Luxemburgisch in German and Luxembourgeois in French, it seems that countries simply add the typical language suffix to their word for the country... which is a pretty normal way of working things.

"Accused" of being a tax haven. Well, there are certainly far worse things to be accused of.

ECJ is a very commonly-used acronym for the Court of Justice, so was surprised this didn’t work.

Whether you agree it was Holy...or Roman...or even an Empire, it was definitely NOT the same thing as the Roman Empire.

Holy Roman Empire and Roman Empire are two different empires.

Great quiz! Could you accept Lëtzebuergesch (native term) and maybe the alternative spellings Letzeburgesch and Letzeburgisch as type-ins for their language? And maybe ESC for the Eurovision Song Contest?
