comment Best way to address a business contact you're on a first name basis with in an email?
@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.

comment What's a good translation for “outcome measures”?
@elena: It sounded good to me at first, too, but I think I was confused because it sounded so much like the English metrics, which can be used that way, and I knew it was a valid German word - it took me a while to remember that as a German word it means a different thing.

comment Possibilities in German to minimize a term?
I edited my answer to be a bit more general. Someone else should probably add some more detail on how to know whether it's "-chen" or "-lein", or when to use an umlaut, because I actually don't know what the rules are there.
