Ah, Mom! I reach out to you from the Wilderness of West Central Illinois to help you reclaim your rightful place in the hierarchy. I notice that the extract from the Nibelungenlied that I posted has thrown Amos into the utmost confusion, but Eiseley PMed me that SHE had no problem with it. Neither has Schweitzer, Einstein, Liebscheiss, Stilly, LH, Bee-Dubya, Khandu, MMario or any other semi-literate, semi-educated, person. Not even Bobert or gnu!
It just goes to show that ALMOST anyone can read Middle High German, doesn't it?
