comment What is the difference between Entschuldigen and Entschuldigung?
Deutsche Bahn uses pretty much every apologetic phrase possible, from the really polite "Wir bitten um Entschludigung / um Ihr Verständnis", the moderately polite "Bitte entschuldigen Sie XYZ" to the rather thoughtless "Wir danken für Ihr Verständnis" (which just presumes that there actually is any kind of Verständnis on your part).

comment Bedeutungsunterschied zwischen “hätte machen sollen” and “sollte gemacht haben”
@Stovner: 'Das hat jeder mal machen sollen' würde im Kontext wahrscheinlich meistens verstanden, aber als seltsam klingend registriert.

comment How does the crew address the captain in “Das Boot”?
@harper: actually no, they call him "Kaleun" as it is the historic usage of the abbreviation. See this Wikipedia entry
