Hello Bogorm,
many thanks for welcoming me. - Best regards, Caligari 04:40, 28 February 2010 (UTC)


Hi there. I came across this German word here. It looks to me like a feminine form of the adjective extraterrestrisch but both us and the German Wiktionary don't give a feminine form. I only know basic German so don't know what to do with it. Any ideas? SemperBlotto (talk) 12:20, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

  • OK, sorry to have bothered you - finally figured it out. SemperBlotto (talk) 12:33, 21 December 2012 (UTC)


Hi there. I have added this noun to the best of my ability. Is it the case that, as in Italian, the infinitive of any verb can also be used as a noun. SemperBlotto (talk) 10:34, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi SemperBlotto. Exactly, the infinitive of any verb can also be used as a noun. But if they are used as nouns they take no plural forms; these nouns are singularia tantum). Exept for the plural the articles are correct. Auftreten misses also a lot of further meanings. I'll add them as soon as I find some extra time. Take care!

I checked all of your articles today and corrected the genitive form in some cases. I also have extended Auftreten. Could you please check if I made any formal mistakes since I'm not familiar with how things normally have to be in an article. I also added Template:R:Duden and Bewegungsstörung.

Hi there again. I came across abgesättigt in the German Wikipedia. It seems to be the past participle of absättigen. I can only find a definition for sättigen, so does it mean "to fully saturate"? The verb aufsättigen also seems to exist. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:14, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Hello SemperBlotto!
You're right: «abgesättigt» is the past participle of «absättigen».
Definitions of «absättigen» are given in Duden dictionary that can also be found in the online edition. According to it the verb has two meanings:
1. chemistry: to be incapable (lit. no more capable) of any further reaction or bond
2. psychology: to satisfy (a need, desire)
I could not find aufsättigen so far. Seems to be a technical term as well (maybe expressing the opposite of the 1. meaning). As soon as I find something, I'll let you know.
Take care! Cheers, Caligari ƆɐƀïиϠ 16:34, 29 December 2012 (UTC)


Hi there. I think that our declension table for edel is wrong. The strong nominative forms should be "edler", "edle" etc rather than "edeler", "edele" etc. If you agree, do you think you could correct it (I shall delete wrong inflected forms). Also, I have just created unedel based upon it, so that will need fixing as well. Cheers SemperBlotto (talk) 17:35, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
