    Helft mir, bitte!

    Helfen Sie mir, bitte!
    I wonder if anybody could find the original of 'The Glove' by Friedrich Sсhiller and a good translation of it into English for me. I would be grateful to you. And I'd like to get the 'Lorelei' by Goethe, also in English and in German.
    PS: I'm not sure that I've chosen the right form of Imperativ )) and there's no mistakes in my message.

    It's perfect, in case you wanted to address several persons in a polite manner.

    Schiller - Der Handschuh
    f.e. http://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Der_Handschuh

    Here is an english/german side-by-side translation, but my english isn't good enough to judge how good this translation really is.

    You can find more works of german authors at Projekt Gutenberg:
    http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/

    Are you sure about "Lorelei" AND Goethe? Maybe you mean "Loreley" by Heinrich Heine?

    Many of the 'more serious' forums and chatrooms require 'Sie'. Und das ist auch gut so. (c)

    Like I said, it depends on what Zaya wanted to say or, to be more precise, HOW he wanted to say it. Maybe he wanted to be extra polite?
    Of course, him having over 100 posts at a forum where everybody uses the informal variant implies that he actually meant it your way.

    well considering he's a beginner to ger (he doesn't know all the usage details of the imperative), i doubt he has super ridiculous politeness on his mind..

    It was the first time I wrote in German Lounge and once I'd seen a nickname Старик )) That's why I wasn't sure.

    I've been searching the right spelling of the names for a long time so it's no wonder that I made such a serious mistake.

    Thanks!

    Сам не знаю, почему 'he' написал. Как-то по привычке, на английском чаще he приходится писать чем she. Надо было просто в профиль взглянуть. Каюсь, *посыпает голову пеплом* А Zaya это что-то вроди Зои? Просто, если это имя, то я его ни разу не слыхал.

    Hoppla.. Sorry, it wasn't clear for me. I should have checked your previous posts using your profile.

    "Haserl" is perfect. It contains "hare", can be used like "honey" or "dear" (well, at least in theory) and is cute at the same time.
