Hi Jens, and thanks for your suggestion (and validation of my geekiness!).

Unfortunately I was constrained to already-known words.

Alternative (b): change the element " sind" in verbList to "__ sind" and

make the plural endings part of the exercise. I didn't think of that till

later.  There's still the issue of dative plural endings, but as a

non-native speaker, I get them wrong myself half the time anyway. As this is

a Mathematica group and not a learning-German group, I'll stop here.



Best regards,

Luci
