Lack of Info
There is very little information on this person (there's even more info in the German version...) someone needs to expand on this.
actually, the book is in English now. I will add what I have from it.--Chrispounds 02:56, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
- What is the etymology of the name "Alzheimer"? I would guess it means "someone from Alzheim," but what is the etymology of "Alz-" and "-heim"? Could "Alz-" be a southern German dialectical corruption of "altes"? Badagnani (talk) 18:15, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
- I find no page Alzheim or Altzheim. Page de:Alzheim is about a place in Rheinland-Pfalz, and it says that this name Alzheim was made on 7 June 1969 as a portmanteau of the placenames. "Allenz" and "Berresheim". I suppose that in some German dialect sometimes, 't'+'s' can become 'z'. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:48, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
- In German,"ts" is pronounced "z"! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:55, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
He attended the universities of Berlin, Tübingen and Würzburg. In Aschaffenburg he attended the "Gymnasium" (high school) and passed his "Abitur". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:43, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
I looked at his name's wiki pronunciation and it didnt seem to totally have the right wiki pronouncing symbols. I dont know how to pronounce the name, so someone else needs to fix up those symbols. Kidlittle (talk) 18:31, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
- Yes the way it was written previously, there was no gap between the 's' and the 'h', which was confusing. Somebody has syllabized it to make it more intelligible. Everything else was correct. Mike Hayes (talk) 01:46, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
history of Städtische Anstalt für Irre und Epileptische
I would like to know if Städtische Anstalt für Irre und Epileptische still exists (The Municipal Asylum for the Insane and Epileptic) or what the history of the building was in the years following Alzheimer's diagnosis.
I corresponded with Dr Maurer who wrote the biography on Alzheimer, and according to him, the building no longer exists. I will try and find the correspondence. Bekkberg (talk) 13:20, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
