comment Usage of “der/die/das eine” and “der-/die-/dasjenige”
OK, in rare cases, it might be possibly to use such an expression, however it still has a different meaning then.

comment is “wie geschnitten Brot” grammatically correct?
A similar construct can be found in many toponyms, e.g. "Grünwald, Alt Grünwald", "Klein Altgrünwald" etc. (vs. "Grüner Wald", "Altes Grünerwald", "Kleines Altesgrünerwald"...)

comment Correct building of a double subordinate clause with impersonal construct
@Emanuel "Lange Zeit" may seem redundant but is a common phrase. I agree with "ausgehen" though. "Rausgehen"/"aus dem Haus gehen"/"an die frische Luft gehen" would be better.

comment When to use “bei”, “in” or “an” with a job description?
@ThorstenDittmar I don't exactly agree. If you say "in der Tankstelle", it implies "at the cash desk", but "an der Tankstelle" implies all kinds of tasks like refueling/washing cars etc. (outside). And: you don't work "im Schalter" (inside the counter), but "an" (beside/at the counter).

comment When to use “bei”, “in” or “an” with a job description?
@ThorstenDittmar The explanation you are referring to (meaning a certain company) was for bei, not an! Apart from that: of course it is vague! I don't think there's a rule, it's just for orientation. I also updated my explanation though...

comment What is the difference in pronunciation of letters E and I?
@chirlu It was just an addition. If Oleksiy wants to know how to pronounce the letters "e" and "i" correctly, he can now have a look at the "ä" as well, because it is often pronounced similarly (that is, practically the same sound).

comment What is the difference in pronunciation of letters E and I?
@chirlu Why do you tell me that? o_O I was talking about the German "ä" [ɛː] and said, that it is often pronounced rather as an "e" [eː].

In addition, in many regions the sound "ä" is more and more pronounced as an "e": ähnlich --> ehnlich, schräg --> schrehg etc.
