In memory of the 1953 East German rebellion, West Germany established 17 June as a national holiday , called " Day of German Unity ". Upon German reunification in October 1990, it was moved to 3 October, the date of formal reunification. The extension of the boulevard Unter den Linden to the west of the Brandenburg Gate , called Charlottenburger Chaussee , was renamed Straße des 17. Juni (English: "17 June Street") following the 1953 rebellion. The event is commemorated in the following poem by Bertolt Brecht :
U-umlaut is more common in Old West Norse in both phonemic and allophonic positions, while it only occurs sparsely in post-runic Old East Norse and even in runic Old East Norse. Compare West Old Norse fǫður (accusative of faðir , 'father'), vǫrðr (guardian/caretaker), ǫrn (eagle), jǫrð ('earth', Modern Icelandic: jörð ), mjǫlk ('milk', Modern Icelandic: mjólk ) with Old Swedish faður , varðer , örn , jorð and Modern Swedish örn , jord , mjölk with the latter two demonstrating the u-umlaut found in Swedish.
