Wiktionary:Requested entries (Low German)

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) of nouns in languages that have them.
  • For inflected languages, if you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • For words in languages that don’t use Latin script but are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in the native script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

  • dermen or Dermen or Därmen - Middle or New Low German? As in: "Hermen, sla dermen, | sla pipen, sla trummen, | de kaiser wil kummen | met hamer un stangen | wil Hermen uphangen." It occurs in several variants, e.g. sometimes it's with regular German capitalisation, with ^ over long vowels or with å (in sla/slå). It's said to be a popular Westphalian folk rhyme, and seems to have been discovered in the 19th century (1830s).


  • Junge, South- or Southeastwestphalian with request for inflection ({{rfinfl|nds|noun}}, cp. this page's talk page) - boy



  • Middle Low German (as there is no Wiktionary:Requested entries (Middle Low German)):
    • apenbar (adjective and used adverbial; is in Johannes Spangenbergius', at GB) - should mean apparent, apparently (German offenbar). Schiller's and Lübben's old dictionary has openbar (adj.) and openbare (adv.).
    • bockstaff/Bockstaff, dative singular and plural bockstauen/Bockstauen - letter. Because of the form "bockstauen" and "enen bockstaff" it looks like a weak neuter noun. Johannes Spangenbergius (GB) however seems to use it as a masculine: "de rechte Bockstaff" and "Vam Geiste un~ [~ above n] Bockstaue.".
      Derived terms:
      (De) Ludtbockstauen (also cited or mentioned as "Ludt Bockstauen", "lutbockstauen") - vowels
      (De) stummen bockstauen - consonants
    • silben - should mean syllables
    • wordt (genitive wordes, plural wordt and wörde) - word. It's with umlaut in Johannes Spangenbergius' (e.g. "Desse unses leuen Preceptoris Philippi, wörde unde sententien [...]"), but as wort with plural word (worde) in A. Lasch's grammar.
