comment Benutzung von “strange”
Ich kenne das schon seit meiner Jugendzeit in den neunzigern. Ich glaube nicht, daß es eine spezifische Quelle hat - es ist einfach der Einfluß englischsprachiger Kultur.

comment Is There Another Way to (Poetically) Say “Sie ist schön?”
This is very nice. The only thing I don't entirely agree with is the use of "so" - "also" wäre besser, oder?

comment Is There Another Way to (Poetically) Say “Sie ist schön?”
ah, okay. Ich kenne den Text nicht auswendig, das stimmt :) "schön" wasn't my idea though, and I explicitly suggest a translation that fits "good-lookin'" better

comment Does “faul” Refer to Laziness or Procrastination?
@ladybug but Tom's question is whether "faul" has a "verschieben" meaning that is not connected to laziness, like when a very busy person postpones something to tomorrow. To which the answer is "no". Do you not agree?

comment Woher stammt der umgangssprachliche Ausdruck „Boah ey“?
Interessante Frage! Die beiden Teile "boah" und "ey" muß man sich aber getrennt anschauen.

comment “Fenstertag” vs. “Brückentag”
Auch noch nie gehört, aber wohl gültig: In Österreich, insbesondere in Oberösterreich, ist neben der Bezeichnung Fenstertag auch die Bezeichnung Zwickeltag verbreitet.

comment “Rezept” vs. “Rezeptur”
+1 für industriell hergestellte Nahrungsmittel - ich habe familienbande in die Bio-Lebensmittelbranche, und "Rezeptur" ist dort definitiv alltagsgebräuchlich, wenn es um die Komposition von Produktionsanleitungen geht.

Not sure why this got downvoted? Sounds about right.

comment Are German words starting with the letter 'p' really of foreign origin?
@Alain ah, of course! (I didn't think of that - I somehow pictured you in the actual Bundeswehr as a frenchman and was baffled:) I grew up near Tübingen, I vividly remember being scared of the tanks standing in the Hechinger Eck base when I started going to school in '86. Such a long time ago, my goodness! Villingen-Schwenningen is a really nice area, yeah.

comment Are German words starting with the letter 'p' really of foreign origin?
@Alain totally off-topic, your "about me" text is fascinating to read. May I ask how, as (I presume) a french citizen, you ended up doing your military service in Germany of all places? (although this is probably more suitable on some other channel like mail...)
