pronunciation | 'sitz-flIschan explanation | The “persistence” meaning of Sitzfleisch exists in common German usage as well; don’t be hasty to take it only at face value. (At face value, it does just mean the part you do the sitting on.) But the printed Oxford English Dictionary also acknowledges Sitzfleisch in the metaphorical sense, as I define it here, so I’m sticking with the OED.
