Fraktion
Care is required with the German word Fraktion, a false friend which has come to mean a political group. So der Fraktions vorsitzende der Grünen would be the equivalent of the leader of the parliamentary Green Party .
The English word fraction, meaning a small amount or a part of a whole, corresponds to the German Bruchteil . For example, the phrase It was all over in a fraction of a second can be translated as Im Bruchteil einer Sekunde war alles vorbei .
