The word Satz can mean, among other things:
- Clause: "A verb along with its subject and their modifiers."
- Sentence: "A grammatically complete series of words consisting of a subject and predicate, even if one or the other is implied, and typically beginning with a capital letter and ending with a full stop."
This can lead to problems when discussing languages. Today, I failed the assignment "Schreiben Sie einen Satz", by writing a sentence instead of a clause. What other words could be used instead of Satz for these meanings in order to avoid this problem?
