  • Abstract: An examination of the verb forms in Brother Hermann's Middle High German verse epic, Leben der Gräfin Iolande von Vianden (c. 1283 in the neighborhood of Luxembourg), is undertaken in the categories of loan words, athematic verb forms, class shifting in strong verbs, the ge -perfective prefix, and apocopation and addition of final n . The last category is developed to situate Iolande , which consists of approximately 5,963 lines of rhymed couplets, in the context of Old High German and Middle High German historical development.
