I'm from Germany and I've always found it weird how much emphasis North-Americans put on words. You can also see it a lot with "swearwords"; where in Germany we don't mind saying a word in a sentence like "You shouldn't use X" or "The word X has many negative connotations", in America there seems to be no separation between that and actually using the word itself.

But I also think that, in general, Europe has a much stronger cultural tendency to value intention over vocabulary.
