comment Welche Schriftsteller oder Dichter waren für die Entwicklung der deutschen Sprache ausschlaggebend?
@Em1 Thank you for the corrections. My German is mediocre, but I wanted to try "in good faith" as it were. As to Wikipedia, I see a few names listed as being examples, but I don't see an exemplar. Is there none?

As a side note: Tolkien's translation of that poem was masterful

comment Wie viele sind »ein paar«?
For clarification: in English pair = 2; few = 3; several = 4; handful = 5; half dozen = 6. Each can imply some variance, but the general consensus is with those numbers.

comment Milch? Milsh? Why the pronunciation difference?
@deceze e and i (and I believe all consonants) are always followed by [ç].

comment What is the Bavarian phrase/joke translated as “I'll give it to you if we have it”?
@Oliver pardon my ignorance, but don't if and when translate to the same word in German?
