comment Using Abflug vs Abfahrt
As a non-German learning the language, it's fascinating to learn of these kinds of colloquial usages of words, even if it's not the "correct" usage of the word in the purely grammatical sense.

comment Abbreviations of Entschuldigung?
Thanks and I wish I could give another +1 for the indication that, in this case, it's the last syllable for this word that is decisive making it far less likely that I heard "Schuldi".

comment Difference in pronunciation of “Er” vs. “Ihr”
I had thought as much myself (air vs ear) however, the recorded voices (for which I don't have the exact text at the time as the exercise is to listen then type out the spoken words) seem to pronounce Er and Ihr very similarly, at least to my ears. And I fully appreciate you can't hear the same voices I can - at least not without signing up for Duolingo! :)

revised Difference in pronunciation of “Er” vs. “Ihr”
Edited to use a better verb which actually does have the same conjugation for both pronouns of Er and Ihr.

comment Difference in pronunciation of “Er” vs. “Ihr”
@Landei - My bad. I chose the wrong verb to demonstrate as, of course, the verb "essen" is different between Er and Ihr. I've edited to use the verb trinken, as that is the same conjugation for both Er and Ihr.

comment Abbreviations of Entschuldigung?
@userunknown - I don't expect you to know what I heard (and I probably misheard it anyway) but the actual question is not based upon guessing what I heard but to ask if there is a legitimate abbreviation of the word Entschuldigung in common usage. No guessing required!

comment What is the difference in usage between “Vielen Dank” and “Danke schön”?
@bitmask - Interesting. My most visited place in Germany is München, so it appears that southern Germany is similar to western Germany in this regard.
