comment Is it “als” or “wie” (or both) that is translated, “as”?
Don't do that, though! My dialect (Bavarian) does this, but it is WRONG and HORRIBLE and WRONG. ;)

comment Redewendung wenn man an ein fremdes Telefon gehen muss
"Bei" ist Standard, aber erfahrungsgemäß wird es oft überhört - wenn man sich angewöhnt, immer den eigenen Namen dazuzusagen, kann man sich viel Verwirrung sparen. ("Ich hab bei Schmidt gesagt! Stop, ich bin nicht Schmidt!")

@Jan It sounded sounded informal and clumsy to me, but since you and at least two other people apparently think it isn't, I might stick with that. You might want to turn this into an answer, and then we can see from the votes if it really is a popular option?

comment Can “nochmal” be used in correct, formal German?
Yeah, the news usually sound less like "spoken language" and more like "reading a written text out loud" - they use a lot of constructs that wouldn't sound natural in conversation.

comment Why genitive pronoun “des” used with proper nouns?
Good explanation! I disagree that "Die Leiden vom jungen Werther" sounds awkward because of the adjective, though - it's the combination of the very modern, highly colloquial von + dative construction and the very old-fashioned word "Leiden" that makes it sound weird. Something like "Was suchst du?" "Die Akte vom letzten Patienten." would sound completely natural, despite the adjective.
