GERMAN GRAMMAR

(Script Format)

 

          As many of the earlier records in German are in a script format, this grammar will familiarize the student with the style.  It will become readily apparent that it is fully legible, requiring only a short period of exposure to being at ease with it.  Gothic script has the advantage of speeding the reading process and being handsome as well.  This rendition is based on the design of Eric V. Greenfield whose original 1940 work is no longer in print.
