    I don't use more than three columns very often, for anything, but it's certainly a good word to keep in mind. It's rather like the word "juglandaceous," which means "relating to walnuts." It's just not a word I use very often.

    Will you introduce åttaspaltig for week #8?

    Hahaha! I didn't even realize that!

    Just like the German siebenspaltig.

    Can you also use it as a verb, like in German? Ich werde deinen Schädel siebenspalten. / I will crack your skull into seven parts.

    No, you would say Jag ska knäcka din skalle i sju delar, where the delar can optionally be omitted for dramatic effect.

    This word might exist in Dutch but I haven't seen it yet.
