Articles in Luxemburger Wort




Beginning from September 2001, I am writing a weekly column for the Luxemburger Wort, the leading daily newspaper of Luxembourg. In true multilingual spirit, as is the custom in Luxembourg, the articles are in French although the bulk of the Wort's material is written in German; moreover, this introduction is in English, and the titles in this page as well (the original column articles have no title), but some titles are in French!
For the first year and a half, the articles were in quiz form, with the problem appearing one week and the solution the following week. It is rather difficult to present these articles here, so I begin from article seventy-something or so. Some articles that were taken from other easily accessible sources (e.g. from books) are not included.
