Holger (über die a/an distinction): Janina vertritt die Meinung von Turner&Charniak (2007): It's a trivial postprocessing task.
Detmar (zu Janina): Du kannst gerne deine Note von der Anzahl der Prozentpunkte abhängig machen, die die accuracy deines Programms von 100 entfernt ist.
Janina: Wenn ich dann freikrieg, um daran zu arbeiten...
Detmar (zu Holger): Die sind ganz schön gewieft heutzutage. Man merkt, unser Studium ist berufsqualifizierend.

Anas: The law of diminishing returns is one of the greatest things God has given this world.

Detmar: So what you should learn from this is that this is not the Alps or the Himalaya, but rather the Hannoveranische Plattland.

Holger (trying to switch off the projector): I think I shrunk.

And now for the ultimate running gag:

Detmar: Let's devote 10 minutes at the beginning of the next session to this.

Detmar: But whe're not really interested in native text, we're interested in why the Russians sometimes leave out articles in English.
Anas: It's a communist plot.
Detmar: Right, it's a communist plot to flood the capitalist brains with additional processing.

Detmar: The trouble ist that most sentences don't just contain one error. Language learners don't isolate it for you.

Detmar: Articles are sexy, prepositions are more complicated, they're a bit baroque.

Detmar: That topic wouldn't be very sexy. I mean, it wouldn't be intellectually very stimulating.

(Anas is talking, Holger and Detmar interrupt him simultaneously, then simultaneously say "go ahead" to each other. After two seconds of confused silence, Anas continues to talk.)

Detmar: This course is not about Schein, it's about substance.
