From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Lautverschiebung \Laut"ver*schie'bung\ (lout"f[e^]r*sh[=e]'b[oo^]ng), noun; pl. {Lautverschiebungen} (lout"f[e^]r*sh[=e]'b[oo^]ng*en). [G.; laut sound + verschiebung shifting.] (Philol.) (a) The regular changes which the primitive Indo-European stops, or mute consonants, underwent in the Teutonic languages, probably as early as the 3d century b. c., often called the {first Lautverschiebung}, {sound shifting}, or {consonant shifting}. (b) A somewhat similar set of changes taking place in the High German dialects (less fully in modern literary German) from the 6th to the 8th century, known as the {second Lautverschiebung}, the results of which form the striking differences between High German and The Low German Languages. The statement of these changes is commonly regarded as forming part of {Grimm's law}, because included in it as originally framed. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]

This is a Thumbnail of the particularly interesting partial SCREENSHOT above. The really fine print is not legible, but if it's slightly oversized, it can be read in the thumbnail. Generally, in the thumbnail, you can't read the fine print. In the fine print I say that I'm using all of these copyrighted and trademarked seals and logos and images without the permission of the intellectual property owners. I am stating that these parties are not endorsing my website and that I am not related to them in any capacity. I state that my ideas and suggestions might affect them or might be related to their industries or areas of interests and that I am addressing these parties and institutions.

I allow commentary on the home page and variants of "Cool." I may not stay with DISQUS but right now it suits me - at least in these places.
