comment Why is it “der Bikini”? Shouldn't the noun be feminine?
Der Rasierer ist vor allem wahrscheinlich ein Rasierapparat und daher männlich...

comment Muss man bei Aufzählungen nach „beide“ und „allen“ ein Komma setzen?
Wenn zwischen "Dirigenten" und "und" noch ein Komma stünde, hätte der Satz wieder eine andere Bedeutung... Allerdings klänge "alle" dann etwas komisch.

comment Difference in pronunciation “Seiten” vs “Saiten”
@Em1 I was until today not aware that my pronunciation might be not the standard way, I was absolutely sure that there was a difference and anyone who slurred this was just a sloppy speaker. And as chirlu didn't cite any references, I just took the liberty of adding my opinion. I do distinguish between Lärche and Lerche, too, by the way... ;)

comment Difference in pronunciation “Seiten” vs “Saiten”
I do not pronounce them the same, I distinguish betwenn Saite with [aɪ̯] and Seite with [ɛɪ̯], as in the answer by @Takkat. But that may be due to the fact that my father is originally from Stuttgart...

@Dustin Gäste is not homophonous with Geste where I live, it's [ˈɡɛstə] and [ˈɡeːstə] respectively.

revised How come there are two ways to conjugate the same verb? (e.g. erschrecken)
Fixed two typos that made understanding the post more difficult (at least for me) and added conjugated forms for "backen"
