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 :)

@user There is a big fat "writing" in the first line?

@user my statement It is never OK to use "ich hab" in professional or official communication is related to writing. Show me an instance where the abbreviated form is used in a written, official document

@user but not in writing, which the paragraph was about.

comment Welche Dialektwörter werden im Standarddeutschen am meisten vermisst?
Ist das geil! Das Sächsische hat im Laufe der Jahrhunderte erkannt, daß für diesen Fall ein eigenes Wort nötig ist. Davon können sich die anderen Dialekte noch ein Stück abschneiden! :)

comment Welche Dialektwörter werden im Standarddeutschen am meisten vermisst?
@sl nicht wirklich, es kommt nicht häufig vor, ist aber durchaus gebräuchlich - z.B. Google "ist heuer" auf Spiegel.de - manche der Treffer sind alt, aber es sind auch aktuelle dabei.

comment Suche eine Quelle zu den NS-Einflüssen auf die deutsche Sprache
@toscho Auch wenn die ARGE-"Maßnahme" wahrscheinlich in vollem Ernst ersonnen wurde: Der Staat ist manchmal durchaus zu Selbstironie in der Lage. Heißt doch die offizielle Software für die Steuererklärung ELSTER. :)
