I really love your site! Thank you so much for doing it.
When I was in college, I took a course for people who had lived in Germany called “Super Deutsch,” in which we took the first two years of college German in one semester. The professor, now retired, specialized in linguistics but taught this course because he loved to see people learn German so quickly. In our first week, he did something similar to what you are doing here with your cognate list: he taught us some basic rules from linguistics that made recognizing new German words easier. We didn’t go very deeply into vowel and consonant shifts and when or why they happened, but he had a list of maybe 50 rules that we could apply when we encounter a new German word – and I still find myself using what I remember from those rules today!
Might you have something like that list or be able to come up with something like that?
Once again, many thanks for this terrific site. I have already referred many friends here!
That is a great idea! I’m adding it to my to do list and see if I can get it posted in the next few weeks. Danke für die Idee! :)
