This is a list of basic German words in support of the better comprehension of basic Latin words in using the Vestibule as a textbook. It was included as an appendix to the textbook the Vestibulum Latinae lingvae ... Vortür der lateinischen Sprach, and is part of the textbook material prepared by Comenius for Swedish schools. During their exercises students were intended to ascribe the Latin word to the German. Compound words were indicated by different type.
