Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1846 edition. Excerpt: ...speedwell, a plant, Germ. Frauenzimmer, Griechenland, Ehrenpriis. Thus even Hekkenfelt, a euphemism for Hell, is a Germ, depravation of Icel. Heklufjall, mount Hekla in Iceland. A few compound words require both parts to be put in the plural, as: Bondegaard, a farm, farmer's house, plur. Bendergaarde; Barnebarn, grandchild, plur.

Ex. indrykker, insert, rykker ind, march into; afstaar, cede, stti.ti.i-af, dismount, alight; oversaitter, translate, scetler over, cross, (as a ferry); of an e is at all required to explain any phenomenon that occurs in Danish compounds. Bd. avergaar, excel, gaar over, pass (over); vdlrykker, express, Irykher ml, squeeze out; igjenloser, redeem, later igjen, untie again.' Prepositions and adverbs composed with the prep. i (itO generally lose this i in composition with nouns or verbs. Ex. igjennem, through, gjennemborer, pierce, gjennemtrcenger, penetrate; imod, against, Modstand, resistance, modvirker, counteract; imellem, between, Mellemgitlv, diaphragm; igjen, again, gjentager, repeat; isteden, instead, Stedord, pronoun, Stedfader, stepfather &c.
