comment Why do you say “so do I”?
I see. Is it possible to have contrastive focus on nor, rarely etc. or do they have to be topical? My starting argument did not hold, but maybe the information structual properties were right?

Ah, great :-) I guess I should go exercise my reading skills. Thanks for pointing (all) these things out to me.

comment Why English pronunciation differs so much from written language, compared to German?
To nitpick: The sound <-> letter mapping in german is not as 1:1 as one might think. Given e.g. the sound [t], there are various ways to write it: t, tt, d, dt. Conversely, the letter <d> can be [t], [d] or part of <dt>, which is [t]. That aside, English has far more irregularities than German does.
