comment When to use “circa” or “ungefähr”?
Note that I was proved wrong on my initial assumption. According to the corpus circa is used more often as I thought–even in Germany. –– Interestingly, your first example doesn't sound that bad to me. The other two are an absolute disaster to my ear, although the last one refers to a number (number of people) and should be valid according to my answer. I really get the feeling the use of these words varies a lot depending on the region you're living.

comment When to use “circa” or “ungefähr”?
@bwoebi Thank you very much for this hint. You are right. Checking the corpus again, including zirka and ca., showed that this word is far more frequent than ungefähr and I stand corrected. My initial assumption proved wrong.

comment Why 'der' in 'Danke der Nachfrage'?
@konkret "Ich danke den Käufern für was? - Für die Nachfrage" Otherwise "die Nachfrage" is incorrect. You don't say "Danke (jemanden) die Nachfrage".

reviewed No Action Needed Particle “ter” in german surnames such as Marc-André ter Stegen. Does it mean something?

comment What is the difference between “losfahren” and “losgehen”?
Die Fahrt geht los, sobald alle Fahrgäste eingestiegen sind. – "Losgehen" also contains the meaning of "to begin". However, it must be associated with some kind of action, activity, or event; and a bus driver is certainly not the correct sort of noun to represent such a thing.
