Zahlung is a transfer of money (so also a payment), Bezahlung is the payment of a bill, of an employee or similar.
hi, 1. "Ich zahle die Orangen" oder "Ich bezahle die Oragen"? 2."Wie möchten Sie zahlen?" oder " Wie möchten Sie bezahlen?"? 3. When I speak with somebody for example: " Ich habe das Auto bezahlt" oder "Ich habe das Auto gezahlt?" , which one is good? 4. zahlung methode oder bezahlung methode?
PS: I wrote hier, because I don't know how I must to use the both words/verbs too in my real life. I hope for answers strictly on my questions, but more explanations are very welcome.
- beide ok
- beide ok
- nur bezahlt
- Zahlungsmethode, Bezahl(ungs)methode (seltener)
so fast :), Thank you very much!
And because you are here, and I like your answers, I have another hard question off-topic, if you can not answer, is not a problem :d. What I do not understand is how/when I must to combine too words, for example how did you make: "zahlungsmethode", why did you put "S" between? I tried to find a general answer. Maybe you have your theory or a very good link?
I think it's mainly a "euphonic" s. But you can also think about it as a possessive "s". Die Methode der Bezahlung = Die Bezahlungsmethode. In general, I think all words ending in -ung or -keit get it. Apart from that I don't know a rule.
The link is very good lesson for me, even if I can't read the complete text in german, I try to ask google translate the words what I can't :D .
Thank you very much for answers! Have a nice day!
