As a philosophical companion to the recently-released Großwörterbuch dictionary of German compounds, this masterpiece treatise of historical German lexicography, in an act of meta-ur-self-referentiality, is actually a single German compound noun. A discontiguous excerpt follows:
Students of lexicography, the history of German, or the morphology of German compounds will find this book as invaluable as it is interesting.
Please note that the medical staff of Psammeticus Press has determined that the reading of this book by non-fluent speakers of German who are not well-versed in at least one language with heavy compounding or agglutination can result in headaches, dizziness, or spontaneous cranial combustion.
