comment Is there a rule that dictates whether to use the eszett (scharfes S) or double s?
@WalterTross Actually, one of the most common letter-forms for the ß today is not a ligature anymore (the one on this page, for example); it is the so-called "sulzbacher Form". Anyway, we've strayed quite far from language and into typography now.

comment Comparing German words for different contexts of “commute” to mean traveling to work?
Pendeln literally means "to swing back and forth like a pendulum" (between home and workplace in this case). I don't think there is a word describing one way of the commute, as in "I was on my commute this morning".
