comment 'y' as a vowel in German
Of note, Takkat's Wikipedia reference above also makes the point of "y" being used in words of foreign descent.

comment How to move a phrasal verb to the end of a sentence because of “dass”?
What do you mean by not separable? Her original sentence without the "daß" makes it necessary to put the separable prefix "an" at the end. :-)

comment Is there any source to find German books categorised in terms of reading ease?
I suggest contacting a library, university, publishing company or book review agency, or maybe a catalogue company like Bertelsmann or even the Goethe Institut, who deal with this sort of thing for a living.

It might be easier just to edit and add to your answer to keep the list all together than to keep adding comment notes. :-) Great work here though!

I would only add that the Biblical Magdalena wasn't the ONLY female follower but just the most famous. ;-) Otherwise great research!

Das schon, aber die Regeln die ich finde kommen anders vor. Ist es wegen irgendeiner Regel oder ist es bloß durch Gebräuche so entwickelt worden? Na ja. :-)

comment Using “-lein” and “-chen”
Takkat's question is about "how" to form the diminutive. I'm going beyond that. Books and web posts I find say both endings are interchangeable, though one tends to be more common. But sometimes one ending can change the meaning a little (consider "Männchen" vs "Männlein") or is more traditional ("Mädlein" vs "Mädchen") or awkward ("Löchchen" vs "Löchlein"). From what I find, it seems either ending is technically always possible (grammatical) but sometimes too awkward (impractical). I'm asking if some words just cannot by some rule use both endings or simply will not for impracticality.
