  1. Re: Goei vs Goed

    Ah, okay, thank you very much for clarification, matakoweg :)

    Although I remember that while I was living in Noord-Brabant for a month some people would just use the latter variant even in casual,...
  2. Goei vs Goed

    It might be a very silly question to ask but since I'm only a beginner and in many online dictionaries terms such as "goeienacht" (as opposed to the presumably more standard "goedenacht") are...
  3. Re: Saxon genitive with academic titles

    Ah, okay, my bad indeed. Thank you both for helping me improve my English. :)
  4. Re: Saxon genitive with academic titles

    Thank you very much for your great tips, Egmont! :-)

    Anyway, the actual Anglosaxon standards aside, if I were merely to correct the quoted sentence it should go like this:, right?

    PS. Do...
  5. Saxon genitive with academic titles [apostrophe 's]

    How do we use the possesive in such contexts? Should I "add" the genitive only to the final surname or only to the title? To both?

    I tried to research it on Google, unfortunately styling guides...
  6. Re: a suspicion of/for some sort of sickness

    Thank you!
  7. Re: a suspicion of/for some sort of sickness

    The number of questions might be equal to 3, but the context still remains only 1 ;) Asking them separately, while repeating the title sentence would make it look as if I was posting the same thread...
  8. Re: All my hope rests in/on/upon/with your understanding of [..]

    And how about "with"? A friend of mine suggested it's quite common in the US at least.
  9. a suspicion of/for some sort of sickness

    I've got 3 issues with that sentence (although I produced it myself), namely not being sure about the preposition before the name of the illness - ie. whether it should be "of" or "for" - and the...
  10. Re: All my hope rests in/on/upon/with your understanding of [..]

    Thank you for your input, JustKate, it's much appreciated. :) However, you say that "on" sounds best to you, does it mean that other prepositions are also grammatically acceptable there?
  11. Re: Those who do not quite fill their present place

    I'd go with Antoine's interpretation as well. For instance, one can view many (the unproductive ones) politicians as "dead weight" upon our societies despite the fact that they can support themselves...
  12. All my hope rests in/on/upon/with your understanding of [..]

    Suppose I have a sentence like this:

    How should I fill in the blank? My own intuition would tell me to use "on" if it were a more or less casual conversation and "upon" in case of the more formal...
  13. introduction into/to a new organization

    Hi. A friend of mine is translating one of those formal business stuff that one sometimes has to bear with when one works for bigger corporations.

    When a new employee joins the company how could...
  14. "There is no business needs for it"

    1) There is no business needs for it.
    2) There are no business needs for it.
    3) There is no business need for it.

    Which of these sentences is/are correct? In my opinion only the 3rd one sounds...
  15. Supervising the stock counters - Inventurprüfer?

    How would a person checking whether die Inventurhelfer did a good job while counting the stock be called?

    Assuming that a stock-taking in some supermarket would have 3 stages:

    1st - phycically...
  16. Re: person that counts inventory during stock-taking

    Thank you very much heypresto. :)

    If anyone else were interested in this, I've also just stumbled upon 'inventory counter' as a possible alternative (vide:...
  17. person that counts inventory during stock-taking

    Big supermarkets sometimes ask for young people to come and help them to count their inventory/stock. How would such a position be called in a job ad?

    I think it might be a stocktaker but I...

  20. Re: driver's licence vs driving licence (for CV entry)

    Ewie, thank you very much for your suggestion, but would such acronyms as PLG and FLT be easily recognisable among HR people?
  21. Re: driver's licence vs driving licence (for CV entry)

    Thanks Loob, but what if someone has many different licences for various vehicles? :D

    My friend is also a certified fork-lift truck driver, so if I put it on his CV like that:
