Yesterday's "Independent" (a UK newspaper) carried a photo showing the
following written on a blackboard:


alt                    neu

der Stengel            der Sta"ngel
der Delphin            der Delfin
d(obscured) Ka"nguruh  das (hand poised)


Evidently, the German spellings are being revised. Who by, why, when, how
etc? More to the point, how does one now spell 'Ka"nguruh'?
