comment How can I distinguish the short sounds [​ɪ] and [e]?
@KilianFoth No, the standard High German pronounciation has /e:/ in "Schnee", /ɛ:/ in "Ähre", /e/ in "lebendig" or "Mechanik", and /ɛ/ in "Messer" or "nässer". Dialects differ, though (e.g., Swabian).

comment How can I distinguish the short sounds [​ɪ] and [e]?
@KilianFoth If you use the same first vowel in Messer and Mechanik, do you use /ɛ/ for both or /e/ for both? (The second looks unlikely to me.) Is the first vowel in Messer and Mechanik the short version of the vowel in Schnee, or is it different?

comment What is “er 'n”?
Es gibt da vielleicht regionale Unterschiede, aber in meinem Dialekt (Mitte NRW) ist 'n für einen auch außerhalb von Liedtexten üblich.
