In a patent opposition document relating to an electronic device: "Es sei auf Seite 14, wo gesagt wird, dass "andere Effekte, wie di zuvor beschriebenen, sowie praktische Probleme, die in der Elektronic auftreten, es geraten erscheinen lassen, die Arrays so zu enwerfen, dass sich Werte für t von etwa der Hälfte dieser berechneten Grenzwerte ergeben."

Thanks very much,

A Mark Twain quote may be appropriate here:
There are ten parts of speech, and they are all troublesome. An average sentence, in a German newspaper, is a sublime and impressive curiosity; it occupies a quarter of a column; it contains all the ten parts of speech -- not in regular order, but mixed; it is built mainly of compound words constructed by the writer on the spot, and not to be found in any dictionary -- six or seven words compacted into one, without joint or seam -- that is, without hyphens; it treats of fourteen or fifteen different subjects, each inclosed in a parenthesis of its own, with here and there extra parentheses which reinclose three or four of the minor parentheses, making pens within pens: finally, all the parentheses and reparentheses are massed together between a couple of king-parentheses, one of which is placed in the first line of the majestic sentence and the other in the middle of the last line of it -- after which comes the VERB, and you find out for the first time what the man has been talking about; and after the verb -- merely by way of ornament, as far as I can make out -- the writer shovels in \"haben sind gewesen gehabt haben geworden sein,\" or words to that effect, and the monument is finished. I suppose that this closing hurrah is in the nature of the flourish to a man\'s signature -- not necessary, but pretty.
