comment Jugendsprache…again - “Alter”
Agreed. Though maybe then it should be a comment rather than an answer. Some people might downvote an answer that doesn't answer the question.

comment Jugendsprache…again - “Alter”
Though your answer may be factually correct, I'm not sure it actually addresses the question being asked. Perhaps you could tie that in with what you have so far.

comment “Erledigen” and “machen”
Good stuff, but the question seems more about contrasting "machen" and "erledigen" rather than just focusing on "machen".

comment How do you say “just because” in German?
Yes, we've all had the sarcastic "Warum? Darum!" arguments. ;-)

comment Is it an insult calling a lady “die alte Huhn”?
Think of it being similar to the English "(crazy) old bird", or "old bat" to use another one. They're somewhat derogatory in a humorous way. The issue of correct gender usage is described in the answers below.

comment “These are my ghosts, the spaces amid love” in German
Welcome to GL&U! It's not really the purpose of this site to just translate things. Have you made an effort on your own that we can help with? The site is intended for discussions that can help other people who might come across them, not quite so singularly focused as a simple translation.

comment Is it correct to use “ich sehne mich nach…” for inanimate objects?
German does have "bang(e)", but it's more like being tense or anxious or fearful. Never quite felt that for chocolate, though maybe it would work for romance, lol.

comment Reflexive “treffen” when planning to meet someone?
My concern is that if revisions were made, then perhaps the vote should be changed. But thx! :-)

comment Reflexive “treffen” when planning to meet someone?
The question seems redundant--to meet someone as opposed to simply meeting them? Do you mean meet them as in being first introduced vs meeting up with them regardless of being the first time or not?

comment What is “It turns out that…” in standard German?
The phrase "sich erweisen als" is probably what you're looking for. Your example doesn't quite match your question, as I understand it. Or do you mean "sich herausstellen"?

comment Wann sagt man “physikalisch” und wann “physisch”?
Hast du es schon mal im Wörterbuch nachgeschlagen? Da gibt's wohl sicher Beispiele, oder?
