comment Origin of the “dem Mann sein Hut” construct
Didn't realize this ground had been covered last year, thanks! Also sorry, I didn't realize there was an acceptance "rate". It's often hard to choose from several very fine answers. No offense intended.

comment Why is it “mir ist übel” and not “ich bin übel”?
Your explanation is correct. "Mir" is not a word that can do the action. Some textbooks call this construct an "understood" or implied subject. The "es" is implied or understood to be there.

comment What does it mean when my friend comes up to me and says “Na”?
In addition to the answer, it also carries the meaning of "Well," as in "Well, what's up?" usw.

comment What is the difference in usage between “Vielen Dank” and “Danke schön”?
You will also hear "Schönen Dank!" in some of the southern regions, which I guess came as a kind of a reverse combination of these two expressions. :-)

comment What is the difference in usage between “Vielen Dank” and “Danke schön”?
"Danke für das Eis!" would be okay, but adding "schön" seems a bit more awkward.
