comment What is the difference between “wie” and “was” in a certain context?
@Em1 An even worse translation I regret to here often is "Für was ist das?". I fear we loose a lot of the German constructs that makes the language what it is, altough I know that it eveolves permanently.

As far as I know "stack memory" is translated as "Stapelspeicher" and "heap memory" as "Kellerspeicher".

comment Do all nouns from verbs nominalized by the suffix “-ung” have a female gender?
@Em1: it's "der Schwung", but this is not a verb suffixed by "-ung". So this shouldn't count as exception.

comment Do all nouns from verbs nominalized by the suffix “-ung” have a female gender?
I would not say that -ung is a suffix in Sprung. Instead it is a vovel change since the word base of the verb is spring. see: ich springe, ich sprang, ich bin gesprungen.
