Was this spelling obsoleted by the German spelling reform of 1901 (i.e., the same one that obsoleted Thal in favour of the more etymological Tal)? † ﴾(u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 14:14, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, looks to be more of Mr Duden's handiwork: . Quite widespread in 18th- and 19th-century writings. -- Visviva 15:34, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

The correct word is "Demütigung", without "h". Same with the verb "demütigen".
- Demüthigung is an old spelling. The modern spelling is Demütigung. There are lots of German words that used to be spelled with -th-. The h was dropped in a spelling reform a long time ago. —Stephen 18:00, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
