    Hey Silent, do you happen to know offhand why the ie in the word Viertel is pronounced with a short vowel? I have never seen that before.
    Viertel means a quarter and yes, it's actually pronounced with a short vowel unlike the origin word which would be "vier" (four). Vier is pronounced like the english word "fear". There are other words that are pronounced the same (for outstanders) strange way. Yeah, i know, german is hard to grasp, sometimes.

          German orthography, or system of writing, is pretty logical and regular, especially when compared to English, whose pronunciation has gotten ahead of its spelling by hundreds of years. The problems in figuring out which vowels are long and short in German seem to come in the following areas, at least in my perception:

          1. Conjugated forms of sein, haben, and werden.
          2. Conjugated forms of modal verbs, e.g., dürfen, mögen, wollen, etc.
          3. Certain common one-syllable words. For example, doch rhymes with noch, but not hoch.

          The ligature ß used to add to the confusion, but the 1996 spelling reform fixed that issue by tying its usage to long vowels (and diphthongs). For a learner, that made things so much easier.

                  Just noticed the "Schubsetanz" video, Silent. I like that one too! I would have commented on it earlier, but since I use the HTTPS version of the site, I never see any of the videos.

                      no problem, man. There are a lot of good bands in that sector, for sure.

But I really like them with Floor, who is a more interesting and versatile singer. The version with Floor is better, IMO, though I had never heard of her until recently.

                                                                            And yep, I'd love to see them live! I might even travel far to be able to see them, if they don't come to a city near me. (might be an excuse to take a long distance vacation)

                                                                              Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

                                                                              There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

                                                                              In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

                                                                              Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

                                                                              A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

                                                                              Comment
