We can't get into a transcriber's mind unless we actually can see the print music.

The place where it could be used earlier in particular, both the English and German words have a whole note G and half way through the note they are supposed to diminuendo. The way this transcriber wrote it was with the whole note G on the left and the in accord sign, then a half rest, then a D, then a half rest.
