Paper, paper everywhere …

How would you translate the German word “Zettelwirtschaft”? Piles of paperwork? Paper chaos? Bits of paper everywhere?

You don’t know the word? Deutsche Welle explains it nicely.

How do you pronounce this word?

You see the word “content” in a piece of writing. But how do you pronounce it? There are two ways. It very much depends on the meaning. The stress is either on the first syllable – CONtent (in German: ‘Inhalt’). Or on the second syllable – conTENT (in German: ‘zufrieden’).

Is it “which” or is it “that”?

Grammar Girl has written an article (link to: quickanddirtytips.com) on when to use “which” and when to use “that”. And she offers a nice little rule to help you remember the difference.
