comment German flash cards with pictures and no English?
You might want to check with a German catalogue company like Bertelsmann and order German children's items, etc. Materials intended for anything other than German only will have the other language on them. That's kind of the point.

comment Past participle of haben
"Weg-" is a separable prefix. That's why it's different than "ver-".

comment Usage of “let me know” in Letter writing
"Empfunden" is the past participle of "empfinden". And since you asked for other ways of saying it, you can also say "Bitte geben Sie mir Bescheid..." (written) or "Bitte sagen Sie mir Bescheid..." (spoken) for "Please let me know..." or "Please inform me..."

comment How to translate “being a”?
Just for clarification, German does have a Gerund form by making the verb a neuter noun: "sein" ("be") to "das Sein" ("the action of being something or existing"), just for the example here.

comment Why is 'Guten Tag' accusative?
A nice effort, but I'm not sure this answer addresses the actual question about wishing someone a good day. An object receiving action (being wished to someone) must be in the accusative here.

comment What is the German equivalent to “to keep under someone's thumb”?
Good additional answer. I would add that this one to me has a little narrower context as in between a husband and wife, not something I would use in general.
