Saturday Word: Gänsefüßchen

gäen·se·fües·schen [ˈgɛnzəfooːsçən]:
origin: (2010) German; Gänse= "geese" + Füßchen= "tootsies" (cute word for "feet")

noun, plural
„Little Goose Feet“, which is what #Germans call quotation marks!

Germans also use «French» quotation marks, called chevrons (French; “guillemets”).
