Is there anyone here who still understands the old german script and compound consonants?
I'm trying to read an old Max & Moritz book (1955) to my son and every other word is a struggle. Tonight I spent about an hour trying to find information on the 'net. I found some information but it really seems like this is not an exact science. After my research I went back to the book and found that I still didn't know what letter(s) some of the symbols are supposed to be. Because it also uses old german language and is written in rhyme, its even MORE difficult. Not to mention that my german is a bit rusty. Very time consuming, but the stories are hilarious if I could just get a rhythm going.
If there is someone here who understands this stuff, I would love to scan a few paragraphs and highlight the areas I am having difficulty with.
