Vom Padagogischen Wert Des Altasachsischen (The Pedagogical Value of Old Saxon).
Groenke, Ulrich A.
The German Quarterly, v40 n4 p693-97 Nov 1967
Discussed in this article is the question of teaching Old Saxon in German departments. Usually, Old High German, Middle High German, and Gothic are taught in German departments where philology is included. Only in the large universities and colleges will one find a course in Old Saxon and Old Norsk. Greater emphasis on teaching Old Saxon is advocated because it shows the beginning of the formation of the modern German language and the relationship of the Germanic languages to each other. (SS)
