comment Wie schreibt man Umlaute und scharfes S auf nichtdeutschen Tastaturen?
@Alexander found a nice collection of shortcuts: rotkel.de/Infothek/Tastaturkuerzel/Anfuehrungszeichen.html — As I’m only working on Linux and OS X myself AltGr+V/B or option+^/2 is enough for me. (Back when I was using Windows I knew the numeric ‘short cuts’ by heart as well, though.)

comment Is it still good form to use a capital D for Du or Dir in a letter?
But well, honestly, I don’t mind how people write their ‘Du’. :)

But how would you write: Franz hat mir geschrieben: „Das kannst du/Du doch eh nicht!“ Findest Du das nicht auch unfair? The person addressed is still someone else, so one might want to write it in lowercase (as in the hat mir gesagt example); on the other hand, however, as a direct quotation one certainly feels obliged to use uppercase ‘D’. My point is: even in the gesagt example I’d consider it a quotation (of a spoken text) and therefore render it exactly the way it would have been written by the person who spoke it, if s/he had not spoken it but written it down.

Sure, that’s how it’s been done. Still, personally, I find that inconsistent. A du always addresses someone directly. It should not matter whether this person is a reader or a listener.

comment When do suffixes “-able” or “-ible” translate with “-bar” vs. “-lich”?
How can ‘bewegen’ be an intransitive verb? If it can move itself, it is still transitive. Considering the examples, it would be a bit better to speak of reflexive versus non-reflexive usage.

comment Wann wird “Telegrammstil” heute noch benutzt?
Nur bedingt passend auf Telegramme, aber hier eine Arbeit, die sehr viele schöne verknappende Beispiele enthält: linguistik.hu-berlin.de/syntax/docs/fries1988_SP3.pdf

Jetzt nur im Sinne auf Pro-Drop-Verkürzung oder auch mit weiteren Abkürzungen, Auslassungen, etc?
