comment Zwei -em-Endungen in Adjektiven hintereinander
@Emanuel - ich dachte auch, dass sie müssen, aber es gibt wohl keine feste Regel und man findet durchaus die gemischte Flexion. Dein langes Beispiel ist immer falsch, da bei der gemischten Flexion nur das erste Adjektiv stark, alle anderen schwach flektiert werden.

comment Can auffordern (etc.) + an infinitive serve to introduce a stretch of indirect speech?
In all cases the reporter quotes Tsipras but in the example given they obviously suggest that that there is no doubt that what he said will be done, hence they may have chosen the more direct binding character. But that's just hypothetical - we can't read the minds of the journalists involved.

Strict grammar is put indirect speech in subjunctive mood. But the reality is different. There is more than grammar rules to writing, especially in magazines such as Spiegel.
