My last comment and answer in this thread and LEO:
in Re to #21 [Mattes (236368)]: I don't want to be more Catholic than the Pope.... BUT I have to insist on mentioning the real appearance of such a thread [as pointed to by See profile: GraVin (371594) see below] and the necessity to document that correctly in this place too:
: "der Sache nach"....: :
if you had done a more thoroughly search you would have been able to find the 'anticipated' post at:
related discussion: Der Sache nach.
in Re to # 20 See profile: GraVin (371594): I second your opinion that it is of no cost in an online dictionary to incorporate as well as to point to 'arcane '*) , archaic, or rare words. It may be helpful for "translators" being in doubt of their ability / competence. [in this context, e.g. also cf. the meaning of 'Befähigung' vs. 'Fähigkeit' : Dictionary: Befähigung vs. Dictionary: Fähigkeit ]
Joking: in nearly 60 years of my reading English I never read or heard about a word "arcane" or "arcaneness"....should these words therefore be excluded from dictionaries??
dict.LEO: "arcane": Dictionary: arcane
'arcaneness': ==> "Sorry, we found no matches for your search term(s) arcaneness."
Last but not least:
https://grammarist.com/spelling/disdain-or-di... : (quote:) Distain is an archaic word not listed in all dictionaries [nevertheless found in some well known online sources, like Merriam-Webster, Langenscheidt, or Collins ]. It meant for something to be stained or disgraced. However, generally it is most often seen in publications as a misspelling of disdain.
The main confusion between these two spellings is that the d sound and t sound are almost identical in formation and their only difference is that one is voiced and the other is unvoiced. Add in regional dialects and it would be hard to know how to spell this word based on hearing it alone. (end of quote) [NB: 'italic bold' =my creation]
I posted the original "quest" due to being confused a bit with the intriguing similarity of the word "distain" not only with regard to pronunciation/sound but in doubt of its notion within a text of a protocol I for sure read thousands of them during my professional work.
So: Thank you for your time and - if you don't mind - don't split hairs anymore. I am satisfied.
(I tried to delete my dict.leo account but - interestingly - I was too stupid to have got it made or haven't got the hang of it....)
