Matrikel - The word #germany

John Paul Lowens <gersigmod@...>

I would be grateful if Mr. Purin or another member familiar with the subject
would post a message explaining the word "matrikel" >from a linguistic standpoint.

Is this a Hebrew word ? If not, >from what language? What is its literal

What is the correct plural of this noun in English? How is it written in
German - singular & plural?

This information would be helpful to me as Moderator of this Forum. Thanks
in advance for any enlightenment.
