comment Adjektiv für »passiv magnetisch«
HubertSchölnast hat Recht. Für die Induktions braucht der Topf kein Magnetfeld zu erzeugen, das Magnetfeld wird von der Herde erzeugt und verursacht, wenn er sich verändert (zB wegen des Wechselstroms) Wirbelströme im Topf, die wiederum Wärme erzeugen. Der Topf muss also nur elektrisch leitend sein.

comment Does the German language have a Shakespeare?
I think everyone missed the real (or the one who wanted to be the) German Shakespeare. It´s Richard Wagner. He didn´t revolution the German language the way Shakespeare (almost the first English writer) did and he came after an long period of genial Sturm und Drang and together with the construction of the modern German identity. Schiller is a philosoph and aesthetician more than a writer. I would add that Schiller´s plays are mostly boring compared with Shakespeare´s. However the Goethe-Schiller tandem defined the modern German language and a whole lot of the German thinking.

comment Meaning of “einmal” as adverb
"Einmal Ihren Ausweis" comes often without "Bitte" :D ... and Bitte is in that case highly rhetorical...

comment “Aufheben” vs. “aufnehmen” for picking something up
Using "aufheben" sounds like you take the baby from the ground and hold it in your hands, not knowing what to do with it. It can be translated by "to lift something". Aufnehmen is much deeper, for example it can be used to translate "to admit someone to something", to assimilate, to take into your pocket, to record on tape, etc. In a text both could be correct.

comment As someone learning German, what should I put on my flash cards for each part of speech?
Adding the case pattern is very important, I would not skip that one.

comment As someone learning German, what should I put on my flash cards for each part of speech?
Adding the Konjunktiv might be too much details, as the usage of the simple Konjunktiv is very seldom. I would also recommend learning prepositions by groups, not one by one, for example : aus bei mit nach seit von zu = always dative ;

comment Usage of “vereinzelt” / Bedeutung von “vereinzelt”
Thx for editing. Shouldn't "alle" be written "Alle" ("nicht Alle werden Mitglieder in der ... sein", as opposed to "nicht alle Mitglieder werden... sein") ?

klar es wäre ungewöhnlich und ich habe sowas noch nie gehört, aber es wäre grammatikalisch richtig.

comment Gibt es im Deutschen Reste von anderen grammatischen Fällen als den vier üblichen?
Locative and directive are no grammatical cases per se. For example in Latin and in German, the locative and directive are the dative and accusative : Ich gehe in die Küche / Ich bin in der Küche. In horto sum / Eo in hortum.

comment Wonach richtet sich das Geschlecht eines Anglizismus?
"Ich habe einen Einser auf die Schularbeit bekommen." "Ilse isst ein Joghurt." Als Nicht-Muttersprachler verstehe ich plötzlich, warum ein paar (deutsche) Kumpels manchmal so komisch klingen !

comment Wonach richtet sich das Geschlecht eines Anglizismus?
Als Regel kenne ich nur "im Zweifelsfall Neutrum einsetzen". Viele "Angliszismen" sind aber nur Englische Wörter, die nur an der Stelle eines deutschen Wortes verwendet werden, zB Boot (der Schuh) "Online-Shop" (wobei meiner Meinung nach nur online der Angliszismus wäre), oder sogar Email ("die Nachricht" hat man immer in der Informatik gesagt -> die Email)...

comment Why no perfect participle? “Sie hat sich scheiden lassen”
"hat" cannot be a past form alone, it has to be followed by a participle construction (participle, or infinitive form vor modal verbs and some more). But the fact that it is a passive form (you "get a divorce recognized from the society" or whoever) is a very good point.

comment Comic books in German for beginners
Anyway I don't know a lot of typical German comics. If you look on amazon.de, you will see Lucky Luke (French Belgian), Asterix (French), The Adventures of Tintin (Tim und Struppi) (Belgian), Batman (US), Walt Disney Comics, Spider Man (US), and Lieutenant Blueberry (French Belgian), and of course naruto, one piece, dragon ball, soul eater etc.

comment Comic books in German for beginners
It's an old language and it might not be something to begin with, but you see some German forms which are always spoken, and you don't need to understand the whole grammar behind it, it just adds something to what you learn. It was very useful for me when I was learning German, (even if it was something else than the "ey alta, was geht" I heard among students), because it helped me see how German phrases were built, and it's easy to understand. But as I said, it is best to read comic books you already know.
