comment Why it is “Eines Tages” and not simply “ein Tag”?
I figure "Eines Tages" translates like "one of these days", which makes the genetive aspect more intuitive.

comment What is the correct answer to “alles klar”?
Man kann nicht durch klumpige Brühe sehen, und durch Tinte auch nicht. Man kann aber dicke Buchstabieren gut lesen. Sie sind deutlich... Die Metapher---"klar" wie Glas, und darum Verständnis?---ist mir nicht klar, wenn ich darüber logischerweise denke.

comment Does “dürfen” + other negatives imply the same thing as “dürfen nicht”?
I don't think English is as clear as these examples suggest. EG: May I go to the party? You may not!, which in German uses dürfen as the conjugated verb in both sentences. Using may to indicate ambivalence is based on context, and often followe by want to... which is actualy just giving permission to the desire.

Ist Sag niemandem! falsch? Oder muss man Sag es niemandem sagen?

comment What's the difference between “Ich habe dich Lieb” and “Ich liebe dich”?
"I love you" in English has two meanings, one sexual, and one deep caring. I use this phrase with my significant other, as well as with my parents, siblings and close extended family. "I like you [very much]" and "I care for you" might be weaker (or more awkward?) versions of "I [sexually] love you". This might be a case of many-to-one translations, rather than 1-to-1.

comment Continuing situations in German
Or "I'm still doing my Christmas shopping." The two alternatives mentioned already don't sound like a continuing situation, but rather one that hasn't started yet.
