GRAFF, Eberhard Gottlieb (1780-1841). A German philologist. He was born at Elbing, Prussia, and was educated at Königsberg, where he became professor of the German language in 1824. A pupil of Jacob Grimm and Lachmann, he followed in the footsteps of these eminent scholars, and produced several philological works distinguished by careful research, such as his valuable discussion on Old High German, entitled Althochdeutscher Sprachschatz (6 vols., 1835-43).
