comment The translation of the abbreviated sentence “He does”/“He doesn't” in German
@CarstenSchultz Yes, really. Wahrscheinlich macht er das wirklich, that's how I'd say it. But I'd never say Ich mach' morgen kochen, if that's what you meant.

comment Using “(sich) umziehen” correctly
@Em1 Yes, I was too unspecific, I meant the variant used in the example.

comment Using “(sich) umziehen” correctly
@marcw But that is 'anziehen', not 'umziehen'. 'anziehen' is not reflexive.

comment Warum ist religiöses Glauben gleich dem Wort “Glauben” (Unsicherheit)?
Man sagt ja auch "glauben heißt: nicht wissen", daher ist "Ich glaube an Gott" doch genau das gleiche. Man glaubt an ihn, man weiß es aber nicht.

comment How to pronounce “Er”?
Half-right. Both cases are pronounced the same, but the letter "R" is pronounced differently, with a weak "e" and a strong "r" (I can't write IPA).

comment Use the dative case or “für”?
Don't you also have both versions in English? "I am buying my wife a bouquet of flowers". It should at least work with "myself" and such: "I bought myself a car" and "I bought a car for myself"

comment Jugendsprache - “ma”
Uuuh, that is very localized. I'm from the Hessian region and there you'd write it 'mer'. Like "Hammer's bald?" for "Haben wir es bald?".

This should be the accepted answer, it is correct, the other one is not.

comment Why are “vier” and the beginning of “vierzehn” not pronounced the same?
@Uwe Yes, really. I do realize that it is probably wrong, but when I read the question I couldn't think of any difference. After looking it up in the Duden I also see that the "ie" in "vierzehn" is pronounced like in "wirr". But if someone would've asked me if "vierzehn" is pronounced like "vier", I would've agreed. I also can't recall any time where I've been corrected about "vierzehn" ... weird.

I'm also a native speaker for 30 years now and I thought this question is wrong, because they are pronounced the same, at least to me.
