comment When does “war” change to “wäre gewesen” rather than just “wäre” in the conditional?
Ah yes! OK, that is obvious now that you say it. So the only way to turn this into a conditional while still making it a "past tense" thing (given it is "war"), is to go the wäre gewesen route, so?

Thanks. I feel rather silly for my error with the root: that feels rather obvious.

comment Most common Präteritum / Imperfekt forms in written German?
Hmmmmm. I had a look at the results for "er litt", and they doesn't seem different to any of the other examples. Put it this way: are the top thirty or so all fairly common? And are there any way down the list that should be up the top? More importantly: are there any very common examples that aren't on the list at all? If not, then I think you are right that for my use case I think I should be fine. Thank you for your help, it's really appreciated.

comment Most common Präteritum / Imperfekt forms in written German?
I really would have preferred to use that portal. But I've already used Google to do it. While I would have preferred the better source, I don't think it's a huge issue, do you? As in, I just wanted to spend my time on the most common ones. I will probably get them all done in the time, but I wanted to have the more likely ones known so I could be most familiar with them. I have the list pasted up: link, in the Google search-frequency order. Would you be able to take a quick glance to ensure it covers all the bases and looks about right? Thanks.

@elena That's a pretty good suggestion, and that's what I've just done. I was kind of hoping there would be some intelligent suggestion that wasn't as laborious, but I guess not! Thanks.
