German[edit]

Is it a misspelling or not? The first part of the definition suggests it isn't, but the bit in brackets suggests it is. Renard Migrant (talk) 23:15, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, it isn't attested outside of the one book cited, and even other additions of that book use beliebiger, which strongly suggests that it's just a typo in that edition. Almost all of the Google Books hits it gets are scannos of "beliebet" — for that matter, even the hits "beliebere" gets are scannos for "beliebet". The first genuine hit is a misspelling of a different word, beliebter: "Es ist ein guter und belieber Ort." (Gerhard Armanski, Die geflügelte Sonne von Edfu: Roman aus dem ptolemäischen Ägypten). The German section as a whole and the citation in question were added by a non-German-speaker (Doremítzwr) with no definition, so I'm just going to remove it as "created in error". - -sche (discuss) 20:43, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
