comment in Genitive Singular for Masculine and Neutral nouns, it's added “-s” or “-es”?
@RegDwight: IMHO the linked question addresses the point what to do when you can use both -es and -s in the genitive form. I understand this one however as also asking for a guide when both and when only one ending is possible (especially in the heading) - so for me this is not a 100% duplicate.

Thanks for adding another site! However, while I appreciate your intention to learn English, that part of your question is probably better off in a comment.

comment Difference between “weil” and “denn”
@ThorstenDittmar: Absolutely agreed on formal speech; however the explicit mentioning of it appears to me like acceptance for informal speech. Anyway, I do not like the construct and will continue avoid it, spoken or written.

comment Difference between “weil” and “denn”
@ThorstenDittmar: As already outlined elsewhere: After a long fight against the construct "weil + main clause" I was defeated by Duden itself - for informal speech, this is no longer considered wrong.

comment Unterschied zwischen “da” und “weil” im Nebensatz
@PattaFeuFeu: Nach jahrelangem Kampf gegen die Konstruktion "weil + Hauptsatz" musste ich mich vom Duden belehren lassen, dass das umgangsprachlich eben kein Fehler mehr ist...
