  Dennis,

  The original poster made it clear that he knew he had so mis-spelled the German word in his original post some years ago, but had chosen to keep it for what he posted of the original to ARSC now. It is to his last post that I, and I suspect most others, have recently responded -- quoting him as he posted.  I think we all have known it.

  Don Tait

Note to correspondents on "Entartete Musik": Your spelling of the adjective
has in some cases left out a syllable [te] that denotes adjectival form.
Just a bit of necessary Beckmesserei.
