comment How to say “I see” in German
Das hab ich auch grad gedacht. Loriot lässt grüßen. Evelyn H. Hat das "Ach so." perfektioniert. In einigen Fällen reicht sogar ein einfaches "Ach ...". Loriot kontert gerne mit "So, so!" - Soviel mehr nonverbaler Inhalt als "I see."

comment Polite alternatives to “Grüß Gott”?
glglgl, not everywhere. I think this is more acceptable in Northern parts of Germany than in the South or Austria.

comment What is the meaning of (something which sounds like) “nö”, “ne” or “no” at the end of a sentence?
This is also subject to regional preferences. In Schwaben, you can tack on a "gelle?" to almost any sentence. In the Western Rhine area near Aachen, it will be "Wa?". I've seen bumper stickers with "Aachen, wa?" !

comment Schwarzer Kaffee vs schwarzen Kaffee
@Vogel612 Wenn Du mit der "zweiten Variante" schwarzer Kaffee meinst, dann, nein. Das ist keine korrekte Antwort auf die Frage "Was möchtest du trinken?". Korrekt is auch hier Schwarzen Kaffee, da es lediglich eine Kurzform von Ich möchte schwarzen Kaffee. ist.
