comment Any German books with included vocabulary?
I have an app on my phone that does that, but it is still really annoying to use, especially if the word is longer or I have to type special characters for it.

@c.p. All of them. I've seen books that identify the number of words used in them - anything form 400 to 2000. Even a miniature dictionary has around 50,000 words. What I want is a shortlist of the 2000 words that actually appear in the book. I don't care that I already know a lot of them, just that it is fast to lookup the ones I don't know.

@elena That would be perfect! Where can I get one?

@NL7 Haha, yeah, ten minutes would be pretty good. I probably shouldn't have used such a precise phrase - I just meant 'frequently', I don't actually know how long I can read for before looking up a word, just that it feels very often. I'm sure it's less than ten minutes.

comment German equivalent of “…, though”
What I'm trying to get at, is that the use of "though" is not grammatically correct in the english sentence - it should be "although the weather is nice", but no-one would actually say that. So I wondered if germans had an equivalent, a way to tag a sentence as implicitly meaning "I agree, but..." in a way that is not technically correct.

comment Translating “He hurts her more than she does to him.”
Interesting aside: it should be "...she does him", the 'to' is incorrect, because the him is dative, not accusative.

comment What is the German equivalent for these speech fillers from English: “umm…” and “like”?
@userunknown Actually it's mostly a US thing, generally referred to as "valley-girl speak". Wikipedia has a good article on it.
