comment Why is “my father's book” constructed differently in German
+1. Im Rheinland (meiner Heimat) geht auch Meinem Vater sein Buch, aber da schüttelt's mich ziemlich.

comment What is the difference between “losfahren” and “losgehen”?
What did your own research show? Which of the explanations you looked up do you need help with?

comment How do you say “to have a tire rotation” in German?
Please, before you go on yet another spree of simple translation questions, remember that you need to show the results of your own research efforts and explain where you got stuck.

@Wrzlprmft, pray tell, how did you glean that this was about the capital letter, coz the OP never said so.

You are posting wrong German. Er steht auf die Bühne is not correct. Nor is Er steht auf den Lastwagen, unless he can stand on multiple Lastwagen at any one time. Please take more care when posting answers.

comment In what regions do you say “Das ist mir”?
Ripuarisch. Definitely. I grew up near Cologne. I moved to Northern Germany to attend university. My friends helped me shift flats in the uni town from a furnished place to a new apartment. They needed to identify what was to stay and what they should pack. Friend: "Der Stuhl da?" - Me: "Der ist mir." - Friend: "Der ist meiner." - Me: "Nein, das ist nicht dein Stuhl. Der ist mir!" That pattern went on for a while until I clocked that they were correcting my grammar.
