EXAMPLES
Aber er hatte die daraus angeführten Teile so geschickt zusammengestellt, daß es allen, die es nicht gelesen hatten (und augenscheinlich hatte es so gut wie niemand gelesen), völlig klar sein mußte, daß dieses ganze Buch nichts anderes war als eine Sammlung hochtönender leerer Worte, und noch dazu mißbräuchlich verwendeter (worauf die beigesetzten Fragezeichen hinwiesen) und daß dem Verfasser alles tiefere Wissen völlig abging.
But he had so adroitly selected his quotations that to those who had not read the book (and evidently hardly anyone had read it) it would appear quite clear that the whole book was nothing but a collection of high-sounding words, not even used appropriately (as was indicated by notes of interrogation), and that its author was a totally ignorant man.
Während daß sie den Rücken wandte, näherte sich der kleine langhaarige und zerlumpte Junge, welcher in der Asche spielte, geschickt der Schublade, nahm den Thaler heraus und legte an seine Stelle ein trockenes Blatt, welches er aus einem Reisigbündel abgepflückt hatte.
While her back was turned, the bushy−headed and ragged little boy who was playing in the ashes, adroitly approached the drawer, abstracted the crown, and put in its place a dry leaf which he had plucked from a fagot.
