This edition of The Merry Wives of Windsor was published in 1909, well before the Catalan Dictionary and General Grammar by Pompeu Fabra appeared in 1917 and 1918. For this reason, the translation of Josep Carner makes use of the grammatical and orthographic conventions that were generally accepted at that time, and assuch have been kept untouched throughout this transcription.

Si l'amor no es gran al començament, el cel ja el faré decrèixer quan ens coneguem mellor, quan siguem casats y tinguem forces ocasións de conèixens l'un a l'altre. Espero que la familiaritat engendrarà el despreci. Mes si m'ho dieu: «caseuvoshi»,
