comment Is there a rule that dictates whether to use the eszett (scharfes S) or double s?
@ladybug: Maybe I should remove this part of my answer. (It wasn't asked anyway.) I learned it like that in school but obviously it doesn't really hold water.

comment Is there a rule that dictates whether to use the eszett (scharfes S) or double s?
@ladybug: True. This is one of those exceptions. Though the general rules don't apply to Erlebnis either. According to them it should be written Erlebniss because the vowel is short.

comment Is there a rule that dictates whether to use the eszett (scharfes S) or double s?
@ladybug: Yes, this is not easy. But in my opinion it's not irregular. For example ss is always pronounced unvoiced. If you force yourself to pronounce e.g. besser voiced, you'll notice how silly it sounds. Of course with s/ß the difference is more subtle but imho it's perfectly there.

comment When to use Perfekt and Präteritum?
But why? I completely agree but I can't explain it. Does it have to do with duration?

@Stefano: I'd say so too but I heard it a few times in a generic way.
