Ganz genau! :-) Vollkommen korrekt wäre die Formulierung, wenn "große" mit dem Buchstaben "ß" geschrieben würde. In der Schweiz ist die Form mit dem doppelten "s" jedoch korrekt, und wenn man kein "ß" auf der Tastatur hat, ist das doppelte "s" auch korrekt.

(Nur der Vollständigkeit halber ...)

Heike333145 ,

Please could you explain something for me ? : I just spotted your phrase: Nur der Vollständigkeit halber ... I believe this means : For the sake of completeness ... but I can't understand quite why... I see: "only of the completeness" followed by "halber"... some sort of genitive of "half" ?
So: only of the completeness of half ?? Any help would be appreciated.

Ui, that's a difficult question. I don't think it's related to "halb" = "half"; I think it's rather related to "on behalf of" (but I may be wrong; this is just my feeling). In any case, it means "for the purposse of", "for .. sake", as you wrote.

This is what Duden says about this expression:

And some additional information on canoo.net: http://www.canoo.net/services/WordformationRules/Derivation/To-Adv/Suffixe/halber.html

Hallo, Siobhn :) If you can't type the Umlaut(¨), similarly to being allowed to write the ß as ss, you may write an -e (so "schoenes"). It helps :)
