comment How you say “Is this seat free?” in German
I don't find that this is a translation problem. Here we have a fixed situational formula and one has to know what standard formulas are used in the other language.

comment Grammatikalische Korrektheit von »was ich von der eurigen Arbeitsstelle erwarte«
"euerig" ist veraltet. Ich weiß nicht, wann mir das das letzte Mal begegnet ist.

comment Does the concept of the Master Bedroom exist in German Language/Culture?
The expression master bedroom is not used in German. If there is a second bedroom for guests it is the Gästezimmer.

comment “Ich” and “mir” in the same phrase
"mir" is used because the verb construction in the dictionary is given as: sich ( dative) sicher sein, dass-clause. It occurs that things in German are a bit differently said compared to English. That should not astonish you if you learn another language.

comment What's the difference between “poppen” and “bumsen”?
Ja, gut, die ÖR Variante pudern hab ich schon lange nicht mehr gehört, gefällt mir. Inzwischen hab ich über Wiktionary rausgefunden, dass poppen aus dem Ķölner Raum stammt.

comment Online resources for German verbs classes: strong, weak, mixed.
I find the list "unregelmäßige Verben" of canoo.net not useful for learners. A learner needs one alphabetical list and not 7 seven where he needs half an hour till he finds the verb he needs.
