comment How do you say “ can't wait to see you guys ” in German?
@Iris: True. In that case you'd write: Jungs, ich kann es kaum erwarten bis ich bei euch bin.

comment I want translation of introduction about my selves in German langu.
@Deepa: "Ich heisse" ; PS: "Mein Name" - nicht "mien nama". You probably heard this from spoken dialect "min namä" or also "min nama" ;)

@Pollitzer: I don't think you'll find a GOOD answer to that in any dictionary, no matter how long you search.

comment Pronunciation of “Leonhard Euler”
Being Swiss, probably his contemporaries just called him Leo, and never Leonhard; pronounces like "Leonnard" (one long N), and /ˈȯi-lər/ is correct German/Swiss pronounciation, while /ˈjuːlər/ .is how an American/Brit would pronounce the name when given the name in writing, and reading it like English characters.

comment Ist es unhöflich, Vornamen mit Artikel zu erwähnen?
@Martin Schwehla: Richtig, wobei es einen Unterschied gibt zwischen Dialekt und "regionaler Hochdeutschvariante/Hochdeutschverwendung".Wenn ich hochdeutsch spreche, sage ich: "ich bin Hans", und wenn ich Dialekt spreche, sage ich: "i bi de Hans".

comment Gender of foreign words and loan words
@Ingmar: Good point, but then it becomes clear that it is singular, because if you'd say (in Dativ) "auf den C.E.", it would clearly be plural, but the C.E. is only one road.

comment How is “IT” pronounced in German? [eye-tee] or [ee-tay]?
In German you don't usually use IT, you say "Informatik". IT you pronounce like you do in English [eye-tee].

comment Is it possible that a native German speaker doesn't put the verb to the end of the sentence after a “weil”?
This is what we call Denglish, Deutsch mit Englischer Grammatik (or mixture of words, like Angel-Shop). It's simply grammatically wrong in German, but as English is getting more and more prominent, this error becomes more and more frequent, especially in translated texts.

comment Gender of foreign words and loan words
@Ingmar: Champs Elysées is actually a really really bad example, because it doesn't matter, it's die in singular and plural, which makes the distinction unnecessary ;).

comment In what regions do you say “Das ist mir”?
@rogermue: It's frequently used in Swiss German. Since that is Alemannic language zone, I'd say you'd probably meet the expression in Southern Germany and Western Austria, too.
