comment What is the Deutsch equivalent of the English phrase “F@#k me”?
"I'm an idiot" doesn't quiote capture the essence of "Fuck me". It's more of a passive-aggressive exclamation like "so it's my fault or what?"

comment Why are “vier” and the beginning of “vierzehn” not pronounced the same?
Not sure if there's more to it, but pronouncing the "vier" in "vierzehn" the same way as the actual "vier" sounds quite stilted. "firzehn" rolls off the tongue a lot smoother.

comment Konditionalsätze mit “würde”?
a) it's bad form to throw down a huge article and let me find the correct paragraph on my own. b) If you refer to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… it seems that it is acceptable English, at least colloquially in the US.

comment die Worte vs die Wörter
@Em1 Nein, Wörter und Worte haben schon unterschiedliche Bedeutungen. Der Zwiebelfisch hat es ganz gut formuliert, was auch sonst: spiegel.de/kultur/zwiebelfisch/…
