Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Some words are wrong defined. For example the word "annexation (German: Annexion)" comes out of war times as forceful annexation but is now understood as a peaceful settlement and "referring to".

What is your solution?[edit]

Give advice to the editors of the GERMAN Duden which words meaning should be changed in the next edition and make a special area on wikipedia where the new definition is presented. e.g. Annexion _____________

new definition suggested/date of confirmation _______________ old definition /date of outdating

Project goals[edit]

We present the suggestions and the results on Wikipedia on the definition pages for the several words.
