@Emanuel Ah, I get what you mean regarding the See-example. Sure! The Fisch one still suprises me, though, but maybe I'm just not used to hearing that.

@Em1 like I just commented, I totally agree with "um den See herum". That one's perfectly fine! The other two... well, maybe it's personal preferrence and what you hear from your parents, surroundings...

2) sure what you said in your post is correct. I was just trying to point out that thos two things I mentioned aren't the same. But in "Wir gehen um den See herum" the um isn't redundant! It is absolutely necessary. "Wir gehen den See herum" doesn't make any sense! 3) I never heard anyone saying "Man isst zu X Y dazu"... Imho the most common way of saying this would be "Zu X ist man Y", to avoid the double "zu"

This might be personal preference or regional differences, but I would NEVER say "Ich zeig' euch mal was auf meinem Handy drauf ist". Although with my 25years I'd consider myself a "digital native". Plus the people I know don't say that either... So mybe it's a regional thing... EDIT: The verb in this sentence - to me - is "ist". Don't see why you would use "drauf" to replace a "missing" verb?!

1) "hersein" is not a word. It's two words. "her" and "sein". 2) be careful: "herumgehen" is not neccessarily the same as "um etwas herum gehen" like in "Wir gehen um den See herum". 3) "Man isst zum Fisch Zitrone dazu" isn't wrong, but nobody would say that. You would say "Zum Fisch isst man Zitrone" oder "Man isst zum Fisch Zitrone".
