Template talk:U:de:deprecated spelling
Approximately 80% of German adults reject the Rechtschreibreform of 1996. The statement in this template that "This obsolete spelling is now never used, or only as a misspelling" is incorrect and much too strong. Words such as daß abound in modern written German and few consider it a misspelling. German Wikipedia includes lots of it. —Stephen 12:00, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
- Feel free to fix it, or to suggest what should it say instead for the 1996 case so someone else can apply the change. —Rod (A. Smith) 14:22, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
- Fixed. —Stephen 15:06, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
This template needs to be improved.
The latest option is "1996" which is: "The spelling WORD was deprecated in the German spelling reform of 1996 (the Rechtschreibreform)".
After 1996 there were 3 reforms of the reform: 2004, 2006 and 2011.
And there are cases like this: The reform of 1996 created a word or a form of a word, and the reform of the reform of 2004 deprecated the newly created word or form.

- Here: "The spelling U:de:deprecated spelling was deprecated in 1938 in Swiss German when Swiss elementary schools stopped teaching the use of the ß."
- de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthographische_Konferenz_von_1901 : "und ab 1934 an den Schulen auch nicht mehr gelehrt wurde"
- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Orthographic_Conference_of_1901 : "apart from the displacement of ß in Switzerland in the 1920s with ss"
So, when was "ß" deprecated in Swiss? -184.108.40.206 08:57, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
