comment Warum wurde/wird empfohlen, einige Farbadjektive nicht zu beugen?
Meine Grossmutter spricht in: „Der Ball ist orange.“, das E aus. Da sie fast 100 Jahre alt ist, spekuliere ich, dass sich das Wort fuer aeltere Sprecher noch als „Substantiv anfuehlt“ und die Regel dort ihren Urpsrung hat.

comment “Wenn ich dir X sagen möchte” vs. “wenn ich dir sagen möchte X”
This sounds more natural: "möchten" seems to be superfluous in this context. I would even leave out the "wenn ich dir sage" - "Glaubst Du mir, dass es mir egal ist, was er von mir erzählt?" - Better: "was er über mich sagt." which hints that not everything he says might necessarily true.

comment Aspects of verbs in German
+1 for interesting question. I somewhere read/heart that pairs like "bauen, erbauen" are a remainder of a richer system of verbal aspects, but don't remember where that was or if I dreamt it :) - I furthermore suspect that some German linguists with no or little background in Slavic languages treat "Aspekt" and "Aktionsart" as synonyms. Don't quote me on that but it might help you find what you are looking for.
