comment Is there a difference in pronunciation between “ist” and “isst”?
@user8712: Well, apart from the fact that it is "der Bär", for animals the correct verb is "fressen", therefore "Der Bär frisst eine Katze" vs. "Der Bär ist eine Katze". And of course generally it should be clear from context what it meant (for example, there are very few contexts where a bear is a cat).

Und "wogen" ist auch die Vergangenheit von "wiegen".

And maybe some hundred years in the future, someone will wonder what relation a Germanised "Proweider" has to a "Weide" ... :-)

comment Where to place “Bitte” in a sentence
In a poetic context, also "Kannst, bitte, du mir helfen" would also work.

comment In welchen Regionen ist die dem-sein-Form gebräuchlich?
Das hat nichts mit Berühmtheit zu tun. Wenn Doris einen speziellen Computer erfunden hat, dann ist es der Doris'sche Computer, selbst wenn nur fünf Personen Doris kennen sollten.

comment Does German “sollen” ever function like English “shall” to indicate a future or possibility (no element of expectation)?
Also note: "Es soll heute regnen" usually does not mean that you wish (or command) that it rains today, but that it was said (probably by the weather forecast) that it will rain.

comment “Kontakt” vs. “Impressum”
But if only the server is in the US, but the responsible one is in Germany, the German justice will have no trouble enforcing it, even if the responsible one is an American citizen.

comment When to use dative or accusative object with “sitzen”?
"Wir sitzen in den Sessel" is wrong. "Sitzen" is always a localisation; the movement would be "wir setzen uns in den Sessel".

comment What is the difference between sich unterhalten and sprechen
Dass "sprechen mit" in der Regel ein Gespräch impliziert, hast Du nicht geschrieben. Nur, dass es in diesem Kontext das gleiche ist wie "sich unterhalten" (was eine wesentlich engere Aussage ist).

comment Looking for a good translation of “unpublish”
Well, the logical counterpart to "veröffentlichen" would be "entöffentlichen", but I don't think that word exists (but then, I'm not sure that "unpublish" is a proper English word either).

comment Best way of expressing “for all I know” in German
But "scheinbar" (although often erroneously used as synonym of "anscheinend") means that it is not really the case, but only appears as if it were.
