Farshimmelt / Farschimmelt: This term is used to describe a confused state of mind, disorientation, or feeblemindedness. I invariably hear it pronounced as more like "fehshimmered." One spelling I found online: "CNN is all fershimmered anyway." This was part of a blog comment suggesting that most anchors on CNN are not very capable or effective. What spellings have you encountered? How would you have spelled it or how have you seen it spelled? How common do you think its use is, either in the U.S. or elsewhere?
