comment How much is “eine gewisse”?
This appears to be a good answer, in that it precisely asserts the correspondence to English. I can therefore understand gewissen as 'an amount that is well-understood by somebody, but not specified in this conversation'. The oustanding question is, as always: is it correct?

comment Verb form of the adjective mild?
@Tom Au: I suppose that's probably fairly obvious to a competent speaker. Its similarity to the English 'en-', typically meaning 'do something to' (eg 'enliven') threw me.

comment Verb form of the adjective mild?
How peculiar. Not knowing very much of the language, I would have read your suggestion as sharpen in English. This makes the word sound like the precise opposite of the actual meaning.

comment Usage of the word “wenn”
Great answer, not least because despite my very limited language skills, I think I understood most of it.
