Advent Calendar 14 – “Prefixes – I’m drawing a line”

Written By: Emanuel Updated: February 19, 2020

“Prefixes – I’m drawing a line!”

Hello everyone,

and welcome to door number 14 of our German Advent Calendar. And behind it is a chart. A chart that’ll make you go like
“What the hell is that”.

Those of you, who have been following for a while will know that I am working on a book about non-separable prefixes. Though not working on it is the more accurate description for what I did this year. I just couldn’t focus on it among all the work and the crazy relationship stuff and life changes I went through – it was quite a crazy year. I like it, though. Just wasn’t the year to write a book.
Anywho, this summer I actually gave a life workshop on the topic, partially to get back into it a bit and see which lines of thought work and which ones suck.
And while I was preparing the workshop I was like “I should give them a handout.”
But it’s not a normal handout. Normal handouts are booooooooring.
I made it as minimalistic and visceral as possible. It’s just the raw essence of each non separable prefix captured. Or  bunch of nonsense….
Just follow the white rabbit ;)


(you can also follow German non separable prefixes explained if the rabbit doesn’t show up)

Comment section opens for questions in 3, 2, 1…. :).  Hit me!!!
Stop whining, I said it was gonna be really minimalistic.  It’ll make more sense, once you have the explanations (which will come in my book). This is really just a tease. But even though it was kind of a last minute thing, I am actually really satisfied with these icons, so maybe the help you, too.
Let me know all your questions in the comments and I’ll see you there or tomorrow with another door.
Bis dann :)
