Usage notesEdit

The spelling Leid tun was deprecated in 2006 in the German spelling reform of 1996 as of 2006 (the Rechtschreibreform). This was the standard spelling from 1996 until 2006, but it was not even an alternative form before 1996 and has not been an alternative form since 2006. So it was considered incorrect before 1996 and has been considered incorrect since 2006, but it is still common in not professionally edited texts.
