Duden – German spelling dictionary
The comprehensive basic work follows the new Official Spelling Rules
The 25th edition of the Duden – German spelling dictionary contains spelling, word division and rules dated August, 2009, obligatory for all schools and authorities. The new Duden presents contemporary vocabulary of the German language so fully as never before. Duden recommendations ("Duden-Empfehlungen“) are new for this edition and prescribe the right spelling in such disputable cases as "Saxofon" or "Saxophon"? In all the cases, where the new Official Rules permit several variants of spelling, Duden gives a recommendation, which is marked yellow. These recommendations should be looked upon as suggestion and help in word choice for the workers of mass media, enterprises, publishing houses, editorial staffs and all the private persons, who attach importance to common orthography. All the new spelling and word division variants are highlit red for the better viewing.
