Daniel Sanders - Biography and Bibliography

Biography and Bibliography

He received an elementary education in his local Jewish school and went on to the Gymnasium Carolinum in the neighbouring city of Neustrelitz. From there he moved to the universities of Berlin and Halle to study classical and modern languages, mathematics, and natural history, leaving with a doctorate in philosophy. From 1842 to 1852, he was a school teacher at his own former elementary school in Altstrelitz.

In 1852 he began a detailed response to Grimm's Deutsches Wörterbuch - of which he was very critical - leading to the publication of his own dictionary of the German language, Wörterbuch der Deutschen Sprache published from 1859 to 1865. This was followed by his Ergänzungswörterbuch der Deutschen Sprache (1878–1885). Among others of his works in the same field are Fremdwörterbuch (1871), Wörterbuch der Hauptschwierigkeiten in der Deutschen Sprache (1872) and Lehrbuch der Deutschen Sprache für Schulen in 3 Stufen (1888). Sanders laid down his views in his Katechismus der Deutschen Orthographie (1856) and was an active member of the orthographical conference in Berlin in 1876.

He also published a translation in verse of the Song of Songs (1866), and wrote some poems titled Heitere Kinderwelt (1868). In 1887 he founded the Zeitschrift fur die Deutsche Sprache, which he edited almost until his death at Altstrelitz in the spring of 1897.

Famous quotes containing the words biography and and/or biography:

    In how few words, for instance, the Greeks would have told the story of Abelard and Heloise, making but a sentence of our classical dictionary.... We moderns, on the other hand, collect only the raw materials of biography and history, “memoirs to serve for a history,” which is but materials to serve for a mythology.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As we approached the log house,... the projecting ends of the logs lapping over each other irregularly several feet at the corners gave it a very rich and picturesque look, far removed from the meanness of weather-boards. It was a very spacious, low building, about eighty feet long, with many large apartments ... a style of architecture not described by Vitruvius, I suspect, though possibly hinted at in the biography of Orpheus.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
