comment Canadian specific terminology
@Kanadier It's probably readily comprehensible, but not really a word – as you figured. I wouldn't suggest it.

comment What are the differences between these suffixes?
2 and 3 are the same... The first is derived from "befriedigend", the second from "befriedigt".

comment Difference between “buchstäblich” and “wortwörtlich”
@Matthias Why is it a common mistake? For me, it's absolutely correct. I do use this word in that way and I feel offended if you'd say that this is a mistake. When I wrote my answer, I didn't look up the word in Duden to find out its meaning. I wrote my answer as I know and use the words and then added the links to Duden for the mere sake of reference. (Though I missed the second meaning in the first place. This wouldn't have happened if I had read the Duden entries)

comment Difference between “buchstäblich” and “wortwörtlich”
@Matthias I'm afraid I can't see your point there. In this very example of Eulenspiegel, it is interchangeable with "buchstäblich", or in other words: it is the figurative meaning.

comment Difference between “buchstäblich” and “wortwörtlich”
@Takkat There's only a figurative usage of "buchstäblich", so what is your question?

comment Ältere Belege für “Das geht ab wie Schmidts Katze” als 1980er Jahre?
Darüberhinaus weiß ich nicht, inwiefern deine Antwort eine Antwort ist. Du vermutest, dass die Referenz zum Schmied falsch ist, bietest aber nicht mal eine Theorie auf der deine Vermutung basiert. Geschweige denn Belege. Das ist ein Kommentar wert, aber keine Antwort.

comment Ältere Belege für “Das geht ab wie Schmidts Katze” als 1980er Jahre?
Verwechselst du da nicht was? Nachbars Lumpi ist spitz. Die Katz hingegen geht rasant ab. Zwei Redensarten, zwei komplett unterschiedliche Bedeutungen. Ich glaube nicht, dass in deinem Umkreis Lumpi der Katz' seine Eigenschaften geerbt hat.
