comment Ausdruck “historisch gewachsen” auf Englisch?
You translation means something entirely different. "Historisch gewachsen" means that something is the way it is because of the history of its creation and modifications. It might look different if it had from the start been designed to fulfill the purpose it is fulfilling now.

comment Unterschied: Nummer vs. Zahl
Belege dafür finden sich z.B. auch in Komposita: Hausnummer, Schadensnummer (bei der Versicherung), Rechnungsnummer, Autonummer... da wäre jeweils -zahl nicht möglich.

comment Which German films to watch to improve my German?
@Ichbinmich No, I mean buy (or rent) a set of DVDs with, for instance, the German version of a season of "The Simpsons" on it, and watch that with varying subtitles.

What about English-language series that hvae been dubbed in German? Just buy the German DVD (mind the region code) and that will usually have audio and subtitles in both English and German. Series have the advantage that you can go through the episodes one by one and don't have to sit through 6h for your three runs.

@Emanuel I guess you're right. I've always found analysis of expletives confusing. Would you agree to call it similar?
