comment How to say “please do not slam the door” in German?
This "verbale Wortkette" is especially common when written on a sign.

comment Can it be correct to use “sei” instead of “ist” in this sentence?
+1 nice explanation of Konjunktiv and Indikativ. We could also add that using Konjunktiv II ("wäre" in this case) would generally be used for reported speech implying the stated fact is wrong. Example: "Er sagte, er wäre nicht zu schnell gefahren." (was speeding) vs. "Er sagte, er sei nicht ..." (may or may not have been speeding).

comment What's the difference between “manch” and “viel”?
By the way, Liebesspiel is quite specific for physical love, and I'm not quite sure this is what the game we know as love is supposed to express here... (or is it really?)

comment Is „Hochsee tauglich“ wrong?
Besides, this kind of fault is called "Deppenleerzeichen" or Leerzeichen in Komposita (lit. spaces in composites), as it is quite widely used. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leerzeichen_in_Komposita

OK, that's true. You do agree though this is colloquial German, don't you?

comment How would one say that he has “finished” something?
fertig gelesen is widely used in Switzerland. I agree though that it sounds slightly odd to me, thinking of "German German".
