Kaputt und Beschädigt
I can't work out the difference between these two words. Does anyone know?
in my opinion, kaputt is no longer functioning while beschädigt is damaged. If the paintwork of your car has been scratched with a key it is definitely "beschädigt" while you still can drive the car. If the motor isn't working, your car is "kaputt" (or the engine is simply turned off;-)
