comment Regular compound verbs with irregular root verbs
Gleiten, ausgleiten, entgleiten, Gleis, glatt, glitschig ist eine Wortfamilie, die etwas mit der Beschaffenheit einer Oberfläche zu tun hat, sodass bei Bewegung auf dieser Oberfläche sehr geringe Reibung vorhanden ist. Es ist unwahrscheinlich, dass diese Wortfamilie etwas zu tun hat mit leiten, geleiten, begleiten.

Don't try to learn Bavarian, try to understand it. Your aim should be to speak normal standard German, every Bavarian will understand you, they are bilingual.

comment Huhn legt Ei auf dem/den Boden
As to me both sentences are a bit curious. As examples for something is at a certain place and to put something at a certain place they are not the optimal thing.

comment Huhn legt Ei auf dem/den Boden
A very unclear sentence that I have to read two times. Without your explanation the sentence sounds faulty, not clear enough. I am sure the poster didn't mean this in (a).
