  • I'm not a native speaker (while this is evident for German native speakers, I think I should state that particularly for the new members of GLU.SE – and visitors).

  • Studying in NRW something absolutely unrelated to German; eager to learn that language because it's interesting per se.

comment Why is “A red apple” not “Ein rot Apfel”
+1 because of the first statement.

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Eventuell”
Gali, could you please link to a dictionary where evento (in Portuguese) has an adverbial meaning? I haven't found it. Some people are trying to help answering your question; it would be problematic if you provided wrong information.

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Eventuell”
@TomAu I see. As hispanic, I recognize Portuguese as quite isomorphic to my language, whence it's quite surprising that evento would be not only a noun but and adverb too. And a pair of dictionaries had already confirmed my suspicion. So, I'll ask directly the OP, why did (s)he state that.

@TomAu Do both really translate to evento? I thought eventual was eventuell and evento was Ereignis.

comment On the declensions of the pronoun “man”. Part II: does the dative depend on the gender of the speaker?
@karoshi Eben, das war die Frage :) Deswegen habe ich geschrieben "Context: A woman, who recently gave birth, tells her friends". Das deutet darauf hin, dass es nach "weiblicher Erfahrung" klingt.

comment On the declensions of the pronoun “man”. Part II: does the dative depend on the gender of the speaker?
Ja, Entschuldigung, aber wie in der Frage lautet, ist eine Frau, die Person, die „Wenn der Artz einer das Neugeborene zum 1. Mal zeigt“ sagt. Das finde ich wichtig. Ein zweites Beispiel wäre mit anderer Tätigkeit, die nur Frauen können: „Nach der Geburt gibt der Chef einer/einem X Tagen frei, um sich zu erholen und die Mutterschaft zu genießen.“ Ich gehe davon aus, dass man schon auf Frauen beschränkt ist.

@Em1 I changed the question so that the answer matches it. No need to change this answer now.

Welcome! well, google translator is quite bad if what you wish is to learn German from it. But even so, I doubt it renders "ein roter apfel"; it should be "ein roter Apfel" ;)

comment “Die unglaubliche Frage des Raffael V.”
Ist das wirklich grässlich? Wenn man einen Deutschkurs besucht, wird dieser Stil einem eigentlich beigebracht, um Vielfältigkeit beim Schreiben zu fördern. (Vieleicht nicht genau diesen Stil, aber den Nominalstil bei Betitelungen schon.)

Ok, I vote reopen, altough I'm not sure how this question would be useful to other users/visitors. However I'll correct the mistakes that don't concern the passive voice.

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Vorkommen”
Aus Wikipedia „Gemeinsam mit der mathematischen Statistik, die anhand von Beobachtungen zufälliger Vorgänge Aussagen über das zugrunde liegende Modell trifft, bildet sie das mathematische Teilgebiet der Stochastik.“ ME nach hat die Stochastik einen impliziten Geschmack nach zeitlicher Entwiklung.

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Vorkommen”
I'm ok with "Ereignis is a subset of a sample space.", but the title (stochastics) is quite restrictive. Ereignis exists in probability theory, which is broader than "stochastics".

comment How to type the capital ß (ẞ) on a Windows 8 German keyboard?
I do agree with Toscho (delete Win8), but even good systems, don't have capital ß in their German layout. (Shift+ß renders ?). Perhaps just nobody uses it.

comment Any German books with included vocabulary?
How could such a book exist? If you can read 10 minutes without having to use a dictionary, that means you are advanced. When you begin German, the vocabulary you learn is standard: Haus, Mann, Frau, sein, haben, usw., but advanced users had already read a lot, random sources, and possess different vocabulary basis. Hence, which words would a publisher choose to be deemed as "unknown"?

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Vorkommen”
I think Ereignis exists in probability. I don't see the reason to constrain that concept to stochastic processes. (Aber vielleicht Heidegger hätte nichts dagegen :))

I see you are new here, so, welcome. Second, and most important, you must look up that words in a dictionary before asking here. (I'd link here the meta discussion to questions about differences, but the meta is now unaccessible).

comment What's the meaning from “Machenschaft”
@Gail The sh doesn't really exist in German. You'll find always sch. (Exceptions might be composite words, the first component ending in s and the second beinning with h. Or s might be a Fugenelement.) ... oh I see now, Machen+s+haft could then indeed exist.
