comment Wie sagt man “Make Someone Happy” auf Deutsch?
I agree with splattne and would like to suggest "eine Frau" or "ein Mädchen" as another alternative for "eine". The use of "eine" as a standalone word for "some woman" is very unromantic.

comment What's the politically correct way to say “mentally retarded” in German?
+1 for correctly describing "behindert" as blunt and noting that there is no alternative.

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 “wissen”, “Bescheid wissen” and “gut/besser Bescheid wissen”
@OregonGhost: Yes, you're right. On second thought, I deleted that whole part about intransitivity. It's beside the point.

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.
