Sprache wurde für mich erst nach einem längeren Auslandsaufenthalt interessant. Damals habe ich gelernt, dass man tatsächlich in einer anderen Sprache denken und träumen kann. Man kann dadurch sogar einen Teil seiner Muttersprache (Schwäbisch) verlernen.

Seither interessiere ich mich dafür, wie verschieden Sprachen und Dialekte sind und wie gleich sie doch wieder sind, welche Nuancen eine Aussage klar machen oder verwässern, wie Mehrdeutigkeiten Spaß machen können.

Mit Sprache kann man jonglieren, balancieren und ohne Netz vom Hochseil stürzen.

No issue here... :) The best thank you you can give on this site is to "accept" an answer (and of course to upvote it as soon as you have enough reputation to do so). Cleared all comments for clean-up. Do continue to ask (and answer whenever you can).

comment Term for continous/progressive aspect in German
@GlabbichRulz: Wrzlmprmft commented not for their own but to give you an idea what we expect to see in a good post, and to help you improve it. Other people visiting the site should find any statements made being backed up by examples, links, or whatsoever... a single liner - though possible - usually will not meet this qualtiy standard we all try to follow. For now I edited your comment as a quote to your answer to show you how this can easily be done. Feel free to add further or better (!) references if you had any. Thank you.

comment German 'for' + subject + 'to' in sentences
@Grantwalzer: I totally agree that the first example is not good style but as I understand it it's meant as an examplatory possibility using a similar construct in German. Using damit is certaily the better way ("damit das Auto schneller startet").

comment “Reality shift” auf Deutsch
Bitte nimm die Kommentare ernst und versuche, uns einen möglichst genauen Kontext für das in Frage stehende Wort zu geben. Mein Eindruck ist, dass du nur deshalb noch keine befriedingende Antwort erhalten hast. Danke schön!
