Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Nun ruhen alle Waelder
an off topic remark to 'gegoogelt':

This word is not yet in the Duden, but that perfect is already perfect. That shows nicely how a new word from another language is conjugated according to the rules of German many decades before its spelling is adapted. My great grandchildren will have to learn it as 'gugeln' and a history of folk website when talking about old German recipies will discuss what the connection between 'gugeln' and 'Gug(e)lhupf' might be.
