Mr. Jacob Grimm was born today in Germany in 1785. He was the brother of Wilhelm Grimm; the two of them gathered up the stories that comprise the Grimm Fairy Tales. Thank you, Grimm Brothers, We say.
But above and beyond that, they were Lexicographers, which may sound suspicious, but means Dictionary Folks. Together, they wrote the first comprehensive German Dictionary, still unfinished when they died. Their work was concluded in 1961! In 38 Volumes; a Big Big Job.
Rhinos liked to encourage the Grimms, but We had a slender grasp of what they hoped to do. Still, it never hurts to say “Sounds interesting”. But in German.
