Was es nicht alles gibt: Unterschiede in der Amt(s)- und Recht(s)sprache! Sehr schön.

Not really. From a linguistic view "Vermögenssteuer" feels much better (genitive case!) but we can't close our eyes to people who invented this tax ;)

comment What new meaning does “letztendlich” contribute?
@chirlu: we want people to find the answer on German Language & Usage when searching via Google (on position 5 here). A comment with an external link is not a vaild answer very much like a link-only answer will not be valid too. We would like to encourage people to not only make up a link collection here but also write good answers. These may also include excerpts quoted from an external source.

comment How much are colloquial reductions of spoken German taught?
@falkb: oh - I see. Your question was a bit unclear in that (I thought you were asking if a learner should learn or use them) - see edit.

comment For new words which are often nouns who sets the gender?
@userunknown: genau deshalb in meinem ersten Satz: es gibt keine Regeln, man muss es nachschlagen. Die Grundprinzipien (die natürlich keine Regeln sind!), die zur Anwendung kommen habe ich aus Canoo.net zitiert. Was daran "not useful" sein soll ist mir gänzlich schleierhaft.

comment How do Germans associate neologisms and borrowed nouns with a gender/linguistic feature when this is not clear from the language of origin?
yeah -its sometimes hard to find similar questions if one is English, the other is German - I missed the German question too - ty @chirlu ;)
