I'm no linguist but is this how Grimms law works?

Original sentence: "They are taking our JOBS!"

50 years later: " They're takin our jobs!"

100 years later: "Ther' takin' muh jobz!"

150 years later later: "Der takn mah jurbz!"

200 years later: "Taekn ma juhrbz!"

250 years later: " MUH JRBZ, DAE TAEK MA JURBZ!"

Is that how Grimms law works?
"Praise Allah."
