are presenting here appeared in 1913 in the first volume of a two-volume anthology

would like to write a little about myself. My name is Yasuji Waki and live
in Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo. I have learnt English since I was a junior high
school student. When I entered University, I started to learn German and studied
German literature. About five ago I started to learn Plattdeutsch (Low
Saxon). Around that time I subscribed to Lowlands-L.
I am not a specialist of linguistics, but I am much interested in Germanic languages, especially German, both High and Low German. I am leaning Low German through E-mail exchanges with several friends in Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
