noch ein Beispiel Apr 12, 2012

· Dear John:
· I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can forever be happy—will you let me be yours?

And along the same lines Apr 12, 2012

Woman, without her man, is nothing.

Woman - without her, man is nothing.



Or, (as Scott of the Antarctic might have said):

We've no dinner, so we'll have to eat the dogs'.

We've no dinner, so we'll have to eat the dogs.

Oku adam ol, baban gibi eşek olma.
Oku adam ol baban gibi, eşek olma.

Kann man das überhaupt übersetzen? icon_smile.gif

Etwa so:
Lerne, werde ein Mann, sei kein Esel wie dein Vater.
Lerne, werde ein Mann wie dein Vater, sei kein Esel.

Ein Soldat, der zum Tode verurteilt wurde, wartete in seiner Zelle. Einige Stunden vor der Hinrichtung kam endlich die 'tödliche' Nachricht!

Wartet nicht, hinrichten !

Die Nachricht hätte aber sein sollen :

Wartet, nicht hinrichten !

Meine Deutschlehrerin hat uns in der Volkschule an Hand dieses Beispiels erklärt, warum die richtige Zeichensetzung sogar Leben retten kann!

The one I remember Apr 13, 2012

In a reference letter:

Gut war sie, nicht gerne sehe ich sie gehen! Gut war sie nicht, gerne sehe ich sie gehen!
