Marty erklärte: "Der Fundus ist eine Kammer voll mit alten, gebrauchten Schulsachen von ehemaligen Schülern, die ihre Bücher der Schule zur Verfügung gestellt haben."

Das Wort Fundus bereitet mir Schwierigkeiten. Vielleicht: resource room?
What about lumber room?  #853971

Possibly store room or junk room, depot, vault.
If you want it to sound like something useful (or with tongue in cheek) - archive.

Is there any more context? Are the things in the room actually used or is it a room that things keep getting put, but nothing ever comes out of?
Thank you, Lllama!  #853976

A Fundus, at least in a theatre, is either the stock you keep for use and reuse, like costumes or props, or the room you keep these things in. Stock seems the best translation for the first meaning. I don't know if  something like a stock room exists in English. Maybe a storing room? Definetly not a lumber or junk room.
Fundus is also used in the sense of all the things you know and can fall back on.
Thanks, ddr :)  #853984

Leave it as it is. A Kittyhawk is a Kittyhawk is a Kittyhawk (P-40).

Agree with Catesse. Since the full company name is Curtiss-Wright the nickname is probably an allusion to Kitty Hawk, the place where the Wright brothers made their first flights.
von atemp (US), Last modified: 2016-09-13, 22:43  like dislike  Spam?  
NB The Wright Brothers were not the first to have achieved heavier-than-air powered flight. That distinction goes to Gustav Albin Weisskopf, a Bavarian-American inventor who flew several times in superior machines many months before the Wrights did in theirs in Kitty Hawk, NC.

The Wrights however had better publicity and photographers on-hand, and so the myth of their so-called historical achievement was cemented into history textbooks. The US state of North Carolina even has the delusional motto "First In Flight" stamped into state-issued automobile license plates.

The Smithsonian Institution has steadfastly refused to repudiate their own longstanding defense of the myth, understandable since they signed a contract with Orville Wright's estate to essentially do so.

The situation is similar to the myth that radio communication was "invented" by Marconi, who was actually a ruthlessly self-promoting flim-flammer who stole NikolaTesla's patented inventions. It took an act of congress to acknowledge that Tesla was first, yet the Marconi myth persists.
Powered flight  #854026
von Catesse (AU), Last modified: 2016-09-14, 03:03  like dislike  Spam?  
There are doubts whether Gustav Weißkopf (Gustave Whitehead) actually did what he claimed. The Wright brothers fulfilled the conditions for an award, which were that it was a controlled return flight over a specified distance. Hence the publicity. (The barney with Curtiss is a different matter.)
Another contender for the title of the father of flying is Lawrence Hargrave. There are no doubts about what he did, but arguments about whether what he did met the criteria for "flight".

Of course, he was only an Australian :-), without access to the American publicity machine or technical support.

Case after prepositions » antworten
von Catesse (AU), 2016-09-13, 13:06  like dislike  Spam?  
This concerns a couple of recent re-opens. The matter has been discussed in Forum previously, but I am now unsure what the decision was, and I cannot find any ruling in Guidelines.
I thought that the case used after a preposition in phrases needed to be shown only if the preposition could be followed by more than one case in different circumstances. That is: an, auf, hinter, in, über, unter, zwischen, etc. And that it was not required after preposition that always take the Accusative (durch, ohne, gegen, um, für), or always the Dative ( aus, bei, mit, nach, seit, von, zu). (Lists not complete.)
Perhaps my memory of the decision is faulty, or it was changed without my noticing. For the benefit of those with memory problems, and especially for newcomers, could the decision - whatever it was - be repeated in Forum and incorporated in the GLs for the future? Please.
(If it is in fact already in the GLs somewhere, where is it, please?)
(Case to be used in Polish is indicated, but the circumstances are different.)
von geo255 (US), 2016-09-13, 13:34  like dislike  Spam?  
That was my understanding, Catesse.

I thought it was assumed Akk. unless labeled otherwise.  In other words, [Dat.] and [Gen.]

I think that this rule applies to verbs. (e.g. helfen [+ Dat.])
The question of prepositions is a bit different.
In IT-DE cases are always added. I would suggest that we also do that in EN-GE and forget ...  #854128
von BHM (DE), 2016-09-15, 18:39  like dislike  Spam?  
the lengths discusions we've had about the problem.

Regarding old entries, the solution would at least in part be simple. Paul could write a simple program that would add the required case after those prepositions that come with only one case. All the other prepositions would have to be dealt with individually.

Overpass / underpass  #853961
von Catesse (AU), 2016-09-13, 13:35  like dislike  Spam?  
I cannot find a single neat English word for this. It means that, instead of having a level-crossing, where road traffic has to stop while a train passes, an overpass or underpass is built. More expensive to build, but safer, and a lot of time and fuel is saved.
crossing above or below the track level \ crossing above or below the railway / railroad  #853966

It has some good visuals.
"Flying junction" would include both overs and unders.
4; Proteus: re the Google scanned books. It a highly regrettable, after all the work put into this project aimed at making rare books available to the public, that so many of them are partially or almost entirely illegible. So badly reproduced that it is impossible even to guess the general import of the text.

Actually, Proteus, there are machines that turn pages and photograph them automatically. I imagine that Google has banks of them. End product untouched by human hand and possibly unseen by a humanoid.
You know the saying: To err is human, but it takes a computer to stuff things up thoroughly. (Or something similar.)
For a while I was doing crowd-sourcing work on scanned newspapers for the National Library. Brilliant project, but it was amazing the mess that the OCR program could make of text.
