comment Use of ‘und’ in Nebensatz
I'm not fond of dropping "sollen" here. It doesn't sound well.

comment Difference between “ab nun”, “ab sofort” and “ab jetzt”
In commercial you can find "ab nun erhältlich/verfügbar". I think it is very rare in colloquial German and you would never say "ab nun" as a stand-alone phrase; this is why it sounds odd and unfamiliar to most of us (even in Germany). Anyway, I don't feel that strong that "ab jetzt" roughly means "already since yesterday" and "ab sofort" roughly corresponds to "from this minute". I mean, in colloquial I would rather go with "ab jetzt" at any rate; it doesn't matter if it was true yesterday or just from this very second.

comment Difference between “ab nun”, “ab sofort” and “ab jetzt”
According to Wortschatzportal, the order of frequency is "ab sofort" > "ab jetzt". "Ab nun" has zero entries. My first thought was that "ab nun" is wrong (as @chirlu said, too), but I guess it's just a bit weird because not that common. You find a lot of entries on the Internet, though. Anyway, regarding your question: no difference at all.

comment Where do you place the stress in the word?
Or forvo.com – and it appears to me, that "an" in "angeblich" is stressed in Southern Region.

comment Usage of wollen; what rules are defining the verbs order
@Jan I'm aware that preterit is even less common in Bavaria, but would you really commonly say "Ich habe ein Kuscheltier haben wollen" or "Ich habe schlafen wollen"? Or would you often rephrase the sentence altogether like: "Ich habe versucht zu schlafen", "Ich habe um ein Kuscheltier gebettelt" or whatever...

comment Was bedeutet „nichts wie hinterher“?
Your actual question I guess is what's the meaning of "nichts wie". You can say "nichts wie weg", "nichts wie los", "nichts wie hin", "nicht wie raus".

comment Southern Austrian Dialect word for “Patenonkel”
@Qohelet Die Region, aus der du stammst, fehlt bei Wikipedia, aber benachbarte Regionen sind gelistet und konkret "Get" und "Gettn". Das ist von "Gete" nun wahrlich nicht weit weg.

comment Why is “Antwort” feminine, if “Wort” is neutral?
Laut DWDS: "antwurt ist eine Kollektivbildung zu dem unter "Wort" (s. d.) behandelten Substantiv mit dem Präfix ant- ‘(ent)gegen’" – Das deutet dann doch auf eine Verwandschaft hin.

comment Wo kann man den Unterschied zwischen Synonymen nachgucken?
So einfach ist das gar nicht, weil die Unterschiede manchmal sehr subtil sind und manchmal ist es einfach nur, dass in dem einen Satz zwei Wörter ausgetauscht werden können und in einem anderen nicht. Oder bestimmte Wortkollokationen. Das effektivste ist aber eigene Recherche: Wörter verstehen, ihre typischen Anwendungsgebiete analysieren und das ganze dann verinnerlichen.

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

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.

@Takkat There's only a figurative usage of "buchstäblich", so what is your question?
