comment Most common Präteritum / Imperfekt forms in written German?
@EdmundHeaphy I wouldn't say that this list is completely wrong but I'm pretty sure that your results are still not good enough to rely on those. Have another look at "er litt". Don't look at the number but at the actual results. I'm pretty sure the ranking of leiden is far too high. Anyway, I don't think that for your use case the actual ranking is that important. You covered a lot of common words. I can't tell if you missed any.

comment Is “selbstbewusst” a negative word?
We live in "these days". And we have to live and accept with what people understand in "these days". And I never lived in "other days" so I do not know any other meaning of *selbstbewusst".

comment Is “selbstbewusst” a negative word?
Comments? Here we go: selbstbewusst is not used "to make fun of people". Selbstbewusst is not differently used in different social classes. Selbstbewusst, furthermore, do not have different connotation when used by different social classes. And there isn't any negative touch in common use of the word. The rare exception are given above. Can't tell about the "real meaning in former times" but etymology wasn't asked in the question. Conclusion: -1. Sorry.

Interessant. Ich finde den Singular absolut in Ordnung in OP's Satz. Kann aber nicht mal sagen, warum.
