I think that there is a small difference. Klar means do you understand it, in the way that military/police radio users would say "copy that". Deutlich is more like, is that well/clearly written, is it easy for most people to understand.
So my German is Klar (someone can understand it) but is not deutllch (not well formed).
They'd mean the same thing here, but "klar" can also mean clear/transparent in a more literal way: "Das Wasser ist klar."
Explanation like that are very helpful because they are clear enough. Thanks,myra!
Please Myra explain to me why deutlich=clear AND in other sentence doesn't accept Das kind spricht sehr deutlich=clearly
I have the same question, I wonder if they are always interchangeable. Looked it up on dict.cc and they seem quite similar, although they may have different two-word constructs, e.g.: "deutlich sichtbar" (conspicuous), "nicht eindeutig" (ambiguous). I guess familiarity with the language will help with knowing when to use one or the other...
I think Duolingo needs a feature where you can tap a spot on the screen to get some etymology of the word and/or distinguish between synonyms.
"eindeutig" means "unambiguous" (clearly having one meaning only, not several possible), "deutlich" means "clearly expressed", e.g. by not mumbling or using special emphasis.
No. "Deutsch", like the English "Dutch", come from "duitisc" which means something owned by the people. It became used to describe the people of Netherlands by the English, and the people of Germany by its inhabitants.
Whereas "deutlich" comes from "diuten", meaning (if I'm correct) "to indicate".
Yes, but for intermediate learners this is low prority, unless you are planning to take a dictation exam.
"-ig" is much softer than a "-ich". If you know the difference between "-chen" and "-ich" then "-ig" is like the former. It is difficult to write the difference, but try to make the sound of a bike tyre puncture that's an "-ig", try to make the sound a tyre inflating machine makes when you pull it from the tyre, thats an "-ich" a quicker and harder sound.
BTW many Germans don't speak with a Hochdeutsch accent and one very common variant is just to say "-isch" for both, so some will say "Fisch", "Zwanzisch" (20) and "isch" (ich) with more or less the same ending.
"Die Frage ist deutlich" doesn't sound quite right to me, although I am not a German "Muttersprachler" "Deutlich" means distinct or unambiguous, whereas here the sense is of there being a situation where a choice has to be made. Gibt's eine(n) Muttersprachler/in die/der alles erklaeren kann?
