comment Die Deklination des Adjektives nach dem Pronomen
@marmistrz Na ja, ich glaube bei beiden geht beides. Hier in canoo.net/services/OnlineGrammar/Wort/Adjektiv/Deklinationstyp/… wird eigentlich als solche für beide Artikelwörter gekennzeichnet: schwankende Deklination.

comment How do you say “handwavy proof” in German?
@gonenc Physics is not about proofs. Proofs are used in physics because mathematics is used in physics. But it doesn't stop there. Handwaving arguments are not proper of physics, but used by mathematicians as well.

comment Der, das oder die „Club-Mate“?
„Markennamen haben kein Geschlecht.“ Dem stimme ich nicht zu. Das Fransiskaner ist die einzige richtige Möglichkeit („der Franziskaner“ ist falsch: bestellt man einen Franziskaner, so kriegt man einen Mönch auf dem Tisch).

comment How do you say “handwavy proof” in German?
I disagree that it's used in physics. It's used in mathematics, and in the mathematics used in physics.

comment Der, das oder die „Club-Mate“?
Gern geschehen, wenn das nicht sarkastisch war. Und wenn es sarkastisch gemeit war, habe ich die Frage gerade eben deutlicher gestellt, tut mir leid (im Titel steht das nicht so klar).

+1 for " Nietzsche in the original is a bliss."

comment Canadian specific terminology
@Kanadier So. Now I hope you can see how standard was. Apparently indigen seems better.

comment What is the umbrella term for ä, ö and ü and the little dots on them?
@O.R.Mapper Maybe. But this is an answer to the original, first question of the OP, thereafter edited.

comment Why does “beliebig” mean random, while “belieben” suggests the contrary?
Seems reasonable. I see that's somehow also the main idea in the given answer.

comment How do you say “act on” in a quantum-mechanical context in German?
@CarstenSchultz It is actually a group action (by one of the generators of the Poincaré group). But my German is not enough to say that it's because of that, that one uses wirken.

comment How do you say “whatsoever” in German?
I see the problem now, @null You think the OP's sentence can be found in a proof. It would be very strange to find it there. It seems rather a comment after exposing a theorem, and a way to say the reader, "we don't prove this". For me it sounds, ilke the sentence cannot belong to a the body of a proof. That's why I disagree.

comment How do you say “whatsoever” in German?
Maybe I didn't understand correctly. How would you use it then to express the OP's concern, i.e. combining that with the dimension?

comment How do you say “whatsoever” in German?
Sorry, o.B.d.A is not what is meant in this case. O.B.d.A is used in proofs, when you want to make your life easier, but still being able to go back to the more genera, complicated case (e.g. assuming Gaussian coordinates from the very beginning).

comment How do you say “whatsoever” in German?
Im Satz ist die Dimension völlig Wurs(ch)t might work, colloquially... (Talking more seriously I rolled back to the original version, since the last "d/aa noneie"-edit didn't seem to make sense.)

comment Kann »Hand« sächlich sein?
Ich kann die vielleicht löschen, es erscheint aber eine bedrohende Abmahnung! :)

comment Kann »Hand« sächlich sein?
Es war ein Stereoanlage. Daher könnte es um das Handbuch gehen.

comment Kann »Hand« sächlich sein?
Oh ja. Das hätte ich erraten sollen. Die Frage ergäbe nun bessern Sinn, hätte ich gefragt, ob es geläufig ist, Handbuch durch Hand abzukürzen. Also ihr könnt gerne die Frage schließen, habe ich selber dafür gewählt.

comment The most general word order in German
Sorry, but dann is not a verb. Whence the "most popular", and only valid, in indicative, would be verb at the second position.

comment Why is the stress of lebendig on the second syllable?
Yes. I think the exception to the rule above, @Chris, is the -keit nouns being feminine (all indeed are). I hope I'm wrong, though.

comment Ist »,also ,« schechter Schreibstil?
@Em1 Ne. Eigentlich hat ein Nicht-Mutterprachler, der Deutsch gut kann, so was irgendwann geschrieben. Ich war mir nicht sicher, ob das geläufig ist.
