comment Is there a word for “hey” or “oi”?
Not restricted to Switzerland I'd say - and certainly a more polite alternative to "he".

comment Usage of “aussehen”
To answer your question: it is a combination of a separable verb with usage of Konjunktiv I in indirect speech that may have confused you here.

comment List of separable verbs (Infinitiv+Verb)
@Crissov: I am not a friend of questions asking for list-answers how short or how big they might be. They are discouraged network-wide and we should not start to introduce this by providing lists in answers.

Good answer. What about self-contained flat/apartment what I believe may be the closest equivalent to Einliegerwohnung.

@hiergiltdiestfu: it was on purpose that I did not copy & paste the list to here. We do not want to encourage such big-list questions.

comment Is there an alcoholic beverage that’s feminine in German?
@WalterTross: so true, but in this case we do not discuss the spelling of a pizza. It is all about Google search results to query for the gender of the cocktail margarita. We do find a lot of pizza reference that of course all should be female. So as always Google queries need to be read with care. Other than that German spelling variants for a Pizza Margherita are very creative ;)

comment Expressions in conjunction with “herunterladen”
Thank you for your contribution. It would be great if you could elaborate your answer a bit with a word on prepositions. This was asked in the question and should be included in an answer. Thank you.

comment Welche Präposition verlangt “Hinweise haben”?
Die Einträge in Duden und Pons sind m.E. irreführend. Zumindest zeigt eine Google-Suche, dass schon in dem einzigen genannten Beispielsatz "...dafür, dass" weitaus weniger gebräuchlich ist, als "...darauf, dass", zumindest wenn man wie in meinen verlinkten Suchanfragen alle Suchergebnisse aus Duden und Pons wegfiltert.
