Duden - german etymological dictionary, 5th edition


The Deutsches Wörterbuch was begun by the Brothers Grimm in 1838 and the initial volumes were published in 1854. Unfinished at the time of their deaths, the dictionary was finally completed by a succession of later scholars and institutions in 1961. [1] In 1971, a 33rd supplement volume was published containing 25,000 additional entries. New research projects began in 2004 to expand and update the oldest parts of the dictionary to modern academic standards. Volumes A–F are planned for completion in 2012 by the Language Research Centre at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities [4] and the University of Göttingen . [2]

The first edition of the DWB exceeded the expectations of the brothers and the publishers. The press called it a "great national work" and its first shipments sold 10,000 copies. As it included words regarded as "indelicate," Jacob anticipated criticism of this and stated the following in the Foreword:

More volumes and updates were planned, but in their lifetime the brothers could only fully complete portions: Wilhelm Grimm wrote the articles to the letter D and died in 1859; Jacob, who was able to fully complete the letters A, B, C and E, died in 1863 while working on the entry for "Frucht" (fruit). [7]

In 2006 the unfinished project to revise and update the A-F volumes to modern academic standards was resumed. The conclusion of this work (the B and C volumes) is projected for 2016; [10] fascicles are appearing with the S. Hirzel Verlag [11] as they are completed.

However, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities [12] announced that no revision of the volumes G to Z is planned. According to the Academic Director of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy, Wolf-Hagen Krauth, the sheer labor that would be required exceeds the possibilities for funding it in today's world. [13]

The Duden ( German pronunciation: [ˈduːdən] ) is a dictionary of the German language , first published by Konrad Duden in 1880. The Duden is updated regularly with new editions appearing every four or five years. As of August 2017 [update] , it is in its 27th edition. It is printed as 12 volumes with each volume covering different aspects of the German language such as loanwords , etymology , pronunciation , synonyms , etc.

The first of these volumes, Die deutsche Rechtschreibung (English: German Orthography ), has long been the prescriptive source for German language spelling. The Duden has become the preeminent language resource of the German language, stating the definitive set of rules regarding grammar, spelling and use of German language. [1]

In 1872, Konrad Duden , headmaster of a Gymnasium (secondary school) in Schleiz , now in Thuringia , published a German dictionary called the Schleizer Duden , the first Duden . In 1880 he published the Vollständiges Orthographisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache ( Complete Orthographical Dictionary of the German Language ); this seminal treatise was declared the official source for correct spelling in the administration of Prussia the same year. The first edition of the Duden contained 28,000 entries.

In 1902 the Bundesrat confirmed the Duden as the official standard for German spelling; Austria-Hungary and Switzerland soon followed suit.

In the ensuing decades, the Duden continued to be the de facto standard for German orthography . After World War II this tradition continued separately in East and West Germany in Leipzig and Mannheim , respectively.

In West Germany, some publishing houses began to attack the Duden " monopoly " in the 1950s, publishing dictionaries which contained alternative spellings. In reaction, in November 1955 the ministers of culture of the states of Germany confirmed the spellings given by the Duden would continue to be the official standard.
