comment Indicating case for proper nouns
@Ingmar Then this is regional thing. Never heard it with that other meaning. Furthermore, "fad" is a word I hear very rarely.

comment Indicating case for proper nouns
"Es ist John langweilig" sounds very odd. Not sure if anyone would say it like that, but I'd go with "John ist es langweilig" only. – Frankly speaking I don't unerstand the "zu"/"nach" question. However, if you'd say "Nach John ist es langweilig" it would mean "According to John, it's boring".

comment Translation of “it all depends on what you believe in”
If OP doesn't explicitly ask for a certain dialect, any questions are considered to be related to standard German. In that respect, your answer is not an answer. I'm afraid but it's hardly possible that OP want to know a Yiddish phrasing, like he's also not interested into Bavarian, Ripuarian or any other dialect.

comment Can the word “gelenk” be used as an adjective?
Naja, im Geschriebenen sind beide Wörter sehr selten. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit das eine oder andere zu lesen geht gegen Null. Wortschatz-Portal hat ~60 bzw. ~150 Einträge. Zum Vergleich, Fußball, ein Thema über das sehr viel geschrieben wird, hat ~21500 Einträge. – Im Sportunterricht oder beim Training höre/hörte ich "(un)gelenkig" hingegen sehr häufig. "(Un)gelenk" ist mir aber noch nie untergekommen; falls ich es doch jemals mal gehört haben sollte, habe ich es mit Sicherheit als Irrtum registriert, sprich schlicht ein fehlendes "-ig".

comment How does one pluralize hyphenated compounds constructed from phrases?
I wouldn't do it. I would use singular. "Ich hab genug von deinem ewigen Ich-war-es-nicht."

comment Any German dict like Webster?
Pons provides a monolingual dictionary. This is rather what OP is looking for.

comment “Allerdings” as a threat
A better word-choice would've been "Klar", "(Geht) In Ordnung", "Passt mir". But "allerdings" is quite OK, too, and there's no threat at all as "allerdings" is perceived as affirmation in this context.
