comment W → V, V → F. Why do German speakers wrongly transpose rather than shift when speaking English?
@ladybug: Bavaria. Do you really pronounce the v in Vase differently from the w in wer? I never noticed that when I heard Saxonian dialect. But maybe I was distracted by other more striking differences ;-)

comment Why use Konjunktiv I in mathematics?
I agree. For the same reason, you say "let x be an element of X" instead of "x is an element of X" in English texts.

comment deleted subordinating conjunction - “dass”
Not sure if I understand your question. "Er sagt, er kommt sofort." is fine, "Er sagt, dass er kommt sofort." is not.

comment Was ist das Gegenteil von “Nordlicht”?
Ich komme aus Bayern. Für mich ist ein Bazi ein schlauer, gerissener Mensch (oft ein Junge), wobei das Wort meist humorvoll verwendet wird und nicht beleidigt. Das Maskottchen von Bayern München heißt auch Bazi.
