comment Welche Schriftsteller oder Dichter waren für die Entwicklung der deutschen Sprache ausschlaggebend?
@Em1 Thanks a lot for your edits! They're appreciated. When it comes to tiny grammar edits, opinions differ; I personally consider them important for language sites such as this one. It's a completely different situation from SO. (I'll remove the comments about editing here in a day or so, since they've served their purpose.)

comment How can I start to use German language in daily life (with the help of a dictionary - for vocabulary)?
@AnuragKalia: You seem to be asking at least three questions in this post. Please narrow it down and ask each one in a separate post. As Takkat noted, some of them have already been covered.

Thanks! Pons has a lot of transcriptions, and seems more reliable than Wiktionary as I haven't found any errors.

comment “Leider, leider, sogt Beschneider”
I'm quite sure that's all he said. I was hoping that it's part of a common joke/saying that would have be recognisable to listeners.

Danke! Kann man, auch wenn die Zeit anderes als Eins ist, "Uhr" weglassen? "Wie wäre es mit Zwei?" Außerdem: ist "mit Eins Uhr" falsch, oder geht beides?
