comment Is there a two-step German vocabulary test that estimates how much words you know?
@Iris, Es sagte 29/30, 23/30, 16/30, X, X. Ist das schlecht (für B1.1)?

@dirkt, Note that if you learn specifically the words that are in this test (it's always the same set, as far as I remember), further test results would be inadequate.

comment What is a German equivalent idiom of “the good, the bad and the ugly”?
"The Ugly" in video compression reminds me the "ugly" GStreamer modules repository, which is for things with "ugly" license regardless of quality ("good" or "bad").

@Elisabetta, Yes, looks duplicate. But there is no "close" button here to vote as duplicate.

comment How do Germans react to foreigners messing up noun genders?
What short phrase is better to use to indicate "I am still learning and pointing mistakes is welcome" without distracting the speech from the main topic?

comment How to “capitalize” (for stylistic reasons) a noun in German?
I expect "god" to be uncapitalized if the god in question is not the Christian or Muslim God, but just a member of some polytheistic pantheon.

comment How to “capitalize” (for stylistic reasons) a noun in German?
I'm a novice in German and can't judge how it can be seen by eyes of native German speaker, but the Das Buch variant looks the best here: it's not intrusive like "switching to english caps for the entire text", not ugly like BUch or bUCH and differs from general emphasis like in "I'm reading a book, not a comic or a newspaper".

@Wrzlprmft, Something this style, but I remember seeing (maybe as a epigraph for something) a different sentence - with a lot of such captialisations. Can't find it now although.

I also remember some notable (especially in America, as far as I remember) story that ends with a sentence about some Bell and advice not to ask who is dying because of any person should important. Maybe "For whom the bell tolls"? Such capitalisation was used a lot in that sentence.

"I read a book." differs from "I read a Book."... This is not a question about "how to put emphasis on a word", but about "how to give a noun proper-name-ish feeling".
