"belassen" does not have a noun in its stem like beAUFTRAGen, beINHALTen, beEINFLUSSen.

comment German Pangrams
LMGTFY: put this in a Google search: "Deutsche Pangramme" -- the first result is the German Wikipedia with probably more German pangrams than you want to learn by heart. Why ask here if you can just search the web?

comment What is the equivalent of “boyfriend” in German?
@unor, if the partner is a female person and is just approaching, it would NOT be correct to say "Da kommt mein Partner." To a native speaker of German "Partner" in this context is male. If I see a woman approaching and the person next to me says "Da kommt mein Partner", I would not clock that it's the woman they're talking about.

comment Is there a difference between “Schuld haben” and “schuld sein”?
Just for fun: There's a running joke in our family: "Der Mann hat immer Recht!". Because that's not fair to the woman, we decided that the woman should also have something, just for her, so we came up with "Die Frau hat immer Schuld!" -- May take some time to get used to, but the upside is: Kein Streit!! :-))

comment Wie wird „Titurel“ ausgesprochen?
Der Vokal in "Fähigkeit" und "Bett" klingt für mich gleich.
