comment Is this a pun? “Der wird sie einmal heiraten — so sogt er”
This. The pun probably works in every culture on the planet. :)

Advice for non-native speakers: Don't use this phrase in conversations unless you're really sure the context is right. (See below why.)

comment Milch? Milsh? Why the pronunciation difference?
@starblue true! @ladybug I don't mind - but don't make that mistake in a swabian (or, probably, Badenian) pub! ;)

comment Milch? Milsh? Why the pronunciation difference?
I second what @Takkat says - it's not /ʃ/ in any Swabian dialect (nor any other of the Alemannic ones I think). It's really strong in Hessian, Badenian, and Pfälzisch.

comment Meaning of Mann as a tribe rather than a male individual
For what it's worth, the german Wikipedia entry seems to be a bit more specific than the english one. Translating: "Alemanni ... is probably of Germanic origin and means 'All men' (in the sense of "humans") or 'All men (= males fit for battle)'". There seems to be no indication of the use of "Mann" in a clan context, at least as far as Wikipedia goes

@Stovner that doesn't work in German - you'd have to use "Der Mensch" or "Die Menschheit"

comment When is it OK to drop the first-person e, as in „Ich hab'“?
@user I edited. Yeah, it's very rare, but when it's used, you can't abbreviate it. (You can in speaking, definitely. The days that politicians spoke clean Hochdeutsch are long over - if they ever were there in the first place :)
