Now a good five years in the making Alan Ng and Sarah Korpi, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have made openly available online a grammar that
guides a learner who has no previous German experience to gain the ability to accurately understand formal written German prose, aided only by a comprehensive dictionary.
Even for those who might not use the grammar in conjunction with the German coursework offered through UW-Madison, it may prove a helpful and accessible reference.

Peter Gurry highlights recent debate over whether the Muratorian fragment is a late antique fake.
Ever helpful, HarperCollins’s Unabridged German Dictionary (5th ed.) glosses “sentenziös” simply as “sententious.”
Perhaps we need a hashtag for “English vocabulary learned while reading German.”
Any ideas? 😉
The second English edition of Wilhelm Gesenius’s Hebrew Grammar (ed., E. Kautzsch, trans. A. Cowley) is based on the 28th edition of the German text. I recently came across a curiosity in the English text that made me want to have a look at the German behind it. Thankfully, Internet Archive has several versions of Gesenius-Kautzsch, and at least one of these is of the grammar’s 28th edition.
