Wonderful good day!

You are surely wondering what you are supposed to do on this page here. Probably a buddy or colleague sent you this link so you too can finally see the difference between "seit" and "seid". Especially tattooed people tend to make this mistake especially often!


If you had paid attention in school … The difference between "since" and "be" is actually soooo simple, but it is one of the most commonly made mistakes along with "that" and "that". With this page, we also want to help you in the future to write more error-free.

1. In these cases you write since with t!

Basically, you can say that the word "since" is only used when referring to time.

2. In these cases you write seid with d!

You use the word "are" when you want to use it as a verb or to describe something.

"You have landed here because someone On the use of an intolerable Language error would like to point out…"

You ask yourself with security, what you should on this side here. Probably a buddy or colleague sent you this link so that you too can finally recognize the difference between "since" and "are". Especially tattooed people tend to make this mistake especially often!


If you had paid attention in school … The difference between "since" and "are" is actually soooo simple, but it is one of the most common mistakes besides "that" and "the". With this page we would also like to help you to write more to write more correctly.

1. In these cases you write seit with t!

Basically, you can say that the word "since" is only used when referring to time.

2. In these cases you write seid with d!

The word "be", on the other hand, is what you use when you want to use it as a verb or to describe something.

Embarrassing mistakes – The latest snapshots:

Unbelievable, what you can find in the net. Find all the "since" and "since" fails in our treasure trove.

It does not stop – we will be seid (t!) years manipulated..

Your site has become really helpful for me in everyday life. When you’re on Facebook for several hours a day, you read quite a few spelling fails!! Will take pictures of it in the future and send them to you for publication, is really sometimes very amusing to see something like that…

Finally someone who writes "man, man, man, …" not only with an "n" and with a capital initial letter. That I may still experience this.

Olaf 22. June 2017 at 8:25

But at least "hdf" makes spaces between the individual words. So he/she still has at least one self-sufficient functioning brain cell of his/her own.

Julia 1. September 2016 at 14:59

If only it were the problem with seit and seid! When I look at the spelling of some people nowadays, it makes me feel quite different. I think many a refugee can speak better German than those born in Germany.

Not from Germany 3. September 2016 at 23:27

Dear Julia, please work on your capitalization before judging other people and their German skills.

Julia 5. September 2016 at 13:10

is everything kake, in 14 days three weeks ves a linguistic tinkerer once again to turn the spelling upside down. heil heil can only be said.whole forests are cut down for this "progress" millions of liters of petroleum tinkered with to make printing ink.just to conjure up a new language culture.
you poor poor writing geniuses,one day you will eat paper and printer’s ink.
did we not have the deutschtum already once under heil,heil,heil ?

Your certain 7. January 2018 at 13:41

You complain about others and when others criticize you you say that they can keep the spelling mistakes? Really sad you are, hopefully this comment reaches you!

Martin 23. April 2017 at 13:20

Where’s the mistake with the capitalization in Julia’s comment then?

Maverick 18. June 2017 at 10:03

I would like to know that too ?

Ehm i personally find that no matter if you are case sensitive on the internet. As long as you respect the upper and lower case in real life, everything is ok! &

perros 16. September 2017 at 4:40

some moron has probably found a hair in the writing soup, just wonder where?

Weller 21. September 2016 at 17:41

I agree with you in part. It’s amazing how many mistakes some contemporaries write down in their texts but to believe that some refugees write better German, I dare to doubt it. I rather noticed that many want to get rid of their comment quickly and just don’t think about proofreading sometimes too. However, I hardly know people who speak our language perfectly. In my opinion, this also includes meaningful sentence formation, accompanied by punctuation marks such as periods and commas. I too make a lot of grammar mistakes guaranteed but I think I’m at least able to articulate myself to some extent. No offense but I don’t really believe that about the more intelligent refugees.

franc 26. October 2016 at 16:54

Among other things. no offense , but…..
going along with it = well

Monika 9. November 2016 at 9:53

Well, the comma errors are already frequent in your text.

Lilli 10. June 2017 at 17:33

First of all, it’s about German knowledge and not about intelligence.
Secondly, if you are about intelligence your statement would be wrong.
Third: ever heard of exaggeration?

Who actually came up with the since and are? This is such a bullshit really. No matter what I write, it is always wrong anyway. But the rest of my spelling is super.

Mups 31. October 2017 at 8:22

Well, the two words have completely different meanings and origins… You could just as well ask who came up with "beer" and "here"..

Susi 5. September 2016 at 13:08

I’m really so glad I found this page on google. My smarty-pants friends on Facebook and Skype have always improved me. But we never learned that in school so exactly. It should remember also some teachers this side times! Thank you

Mandragor 17. September 2017 at 4:35

But then they were missing when seit and seid were dealt with. "since" is a tense word, no ifs, ands, or buts. To the word "are" there is a mnemonic for those who are not quite so sure and temporarily uses the word "are" in the sentence statement. Example: "Seid=s (you) gone totally insane?"

flyxiii 5. September 2016 at 14:46

Remember it this way: beT stands for tiMe, and beD comes from sinD. &

Gaby 1. November 2016 at 19:02

It is even easier that since, is time related, us that be, is related to man.

Quote:If you would have paid attention in school … The difference between "since" and "are" is actually soooo simple…
Yes I think that is nice.But when you write something like this you should also write what the difference is.
So what difference is there except that it is written with t or d?
And why do you write it this way?
As long as I don’t know a logical reason I write it the way I want to write it.When pronouncing it, it doesn’t make any difference, so why should I write it like this? Only because it is given by an idiotic spelling? Certainly not!

Frank N. Stone 15. November 2016 at 6:52

People like to infer level of education and ultimately social standing from spelling. You have just 0.4/1 undercut.

Martin 23. April 2017 at 13:30

Also interesting, how Andre is fussy about putting the accent in the right direction on the last letter of his name. When I write french, I always make mistakes, so I leave out the accents (is difficult on my german keyboard anyway). The argument of Antree is so, as if jemant schraiben wird, er faare nach minchen oder wohnen in kelln am rein (oder liegt disseldorph am mein?)

Man!! Let’s make the page back to the previous state with the "If you had paid more attention in school" in real bold!

As SlyvesterSilvester still is.

Nici 26. September 2016 at 7:50

Well, you have to stick to the spelling somehow, but with seit and seid, I think most people are very unsure. So maybe it doesn’t stand out at all if you just misspell it&

Reloaded Team 12. October 2016 at 17:43

The entry is a bit, but thanks for the insertion& fun to read.

Molly 15. October 2016 at 17:05

The site for smart alecks and know-it-alls!
Luckily you live in reality and not on the net…
Because that’s where the spoken word matters and not,
as it would have been written somewhere else!
For me personally the page is as superfluous as diarrhea!
By the way, for me the character of a person is much more important than his grammar!

JennyKa 21. October 2016 at 21:26

1. That tattooed people more often confuse seid and seit, I doubt!
2. Those who doubt the German of the refugees should perhaps first learn spelling and punctuation themselves! Six mistakes..
3. It is explained when and why to write seid and seit! Just finish reading…
4. Is such a site helpful, because a correct spelling – as nonsensical as one may find it – is essential from my point of view! In the letter of application, for example: What employer would hire someone with countless errors in their cover letter?
5. Those who consider such sites superfluous, after all, do not have to look at them!
6. For me, a person’s character also counts more – as opposed to spelling or arithmetic skills….

Andre GK 29. October 2016 at 2:32

I have read through this completely.Now tell me where exactly it is explained why one writes since or seid.It only says that you do it.But not why you do it this way.If the site can’t give me an answer then maybe you can?
So I don’t want to stay stupid all the time.^^
And you should help each other in a society, shouldn’t you?

Andre GK 29. October 2016 at 2:34

rs 1. December 2016 at 13:46

If I may help you briefly:
"…tell me where exactly it is explained why … It just says that you do it. But not why you do it this way. … can give, then perhaps you?"

I’ll be happy to explain the "why" to you as well. The word "be" with d is a form of the verb (doing word) "to be". Accordingly, this word has a different origin than the word "since", which describes a period of time or a point in time in the past.

By the way, you can hear a difference even with clear pronunciation!

Andre GK 10. December 2016 at 15:56

Thanks for the explanation.But what you have told me I already know.But if the since has a different origin than the seid the question arises where do these two worter come from.For me the seid and seit makes no sense.Is just superfluous crap that you do not need.Even if I now insert seid at the temporal the sentence does not change.One knows what is meant.And I don’t hear any difference in pronunciation either.Whether I say seit or seid.In the end you only hear the t out anyway.
That’s why I’m slowly getting used to writing only with t at the end.
But everyone must know how he wants to do that.
Greetings back

Andre GK 10. December 2016 at 16:03

Sorry for the mistakes.With cell phone it is full stupid to write.The view of the writing field is too small.And when you try to check what you have written, the whole screen keeps sliding upwards.What makes it impossible to improve.

Frank N. Stone 15. November 2016 at 6:56

You should help yourself, but not you.

allon 27. October 2016 at 18:03

Since when are you actually so envious of the spellers ?

Andre GK 29. October 2016 at 2:39

What understanders?
Those who have never been able to explain to me why you write in temporal since and otherwise seid?
Yes great understanders, there one must be full envious on it. (Irony on)

Frank N. Stone 15. November 2016 at 6:55

Unlike you, they understood that spelling is not necessarily about logic, but about conventions. But to pity you because of this – I would find this unfair.

You have my understanding!

Kalle Oberschlau 17. November 2016 at 11:16

Hey, super made, here still a very important tip:
In the question of when to write seid: Whenever the basic verb is SEIN. The mnemonic is: whenever the same sentence would read "I am" in the first person form, write seid with a "D". That helps even more, I think&

Ben 14. December 2016 at 22:16

For me you are the best!

Martin 23. April 2017 at 13:40

Ben, brilliant comment. Now the only versions missing are beidt, beid and beit. Funny that no one has ever made this mistake. Maybe it’s because the sharp ‘s’ has become the double-s more often since the spelling reform. But I have never found "sseid" and "sseit’ or "sseidt" either. This shows that the people who make the mistake with seid and seit must have read quite a bit of text and are not just phoneticians.

Dyslexic 24. January 2017 at 0:51

Many dyslexics memorize the spelling of a word figuratively. Unfortunately the tips above don’t really help. I just think of the word ‘since’. Many people who are not affected by dyslexia somehow do not understand this assistance, but other dyslexics are often very grateful for the tip.

Sibille 19. February 2017 at 22:10

I am so glad to have found this site. Since then I can always write this under the Facebook posts. I always mean then "you are all stupid". Funny!

Hans 8. April 2017 at 9:08

Hey, if you are running a website about spelling, then set a good example: "It’s really easy to understand"… Unfortunately, there is a comma missing

I find it very funny that you get upset about since and seid….
Had the laugh flash of my life. Question: can you unlearn spelling and German skills if you have a bad German teacher for 2 grades who gets paid for babbling??
(Please don’t grumble if something is wrong, have a grotty bad German teacher.

Aaron 24. August 2017 at 3:38

After reading through all the comments I have to put my two cents in too:
For me, spelling simply has something to do with aesthetics. I think a text just reads much nicer without these mistakes, just like a new road drives nicer. For me, spelling mistakes can disturb the "harmony" of a text, just as a violin can be played so beautifully, but when it is out of tune, it just doesn’t captivate and grab you in the same way. Of course spelling errors are not the end of the world and not every comment needs to be meticulously checked (except maybe on websites like this& ). Texts can be poignant and captivating even with spelling mistakes, but it’s just more "fun" to read you without them.

Yes I know, I make comma mistakes and love symbolism. For the mistakes with commas, I still have three years (until 13. Class).
If anyone would still have patience my comma errors (and maybe some with the semicolon) then, please…

Friendly greetings

I find your page really funny and think it points out people who make this typo in a sarcastic and non-judgmental way of their faux pas, but I find that the statement, with the tattooed people in the first paragraph, makes no sense at all and I would ask you to remove it.

Thanks in advance

Julia Becker 7. January 2018 at 19:58

I already do it right unconsciously. Sometime I read a text that some people do it wrong and only then I noticed that there are "seit" and "seid". Because I was unsure if I was doing it right, I googled for it and found this page. I am reassured that I do not make these mistakes.

But what makes me extremely angry is this pigeonholing!

"Tattooed people in particular tend to make this mistake especially often!"

This sentence made me realize that this person resorts to unconfirmed and template-like thought patterns.

Thought pigeonholes are nothing more than a simplification of reality to make it easier for us to categorize fellow human beings.

Markus 16. February 2018 at 10:17

You could have saved the smartass sentence to start with. "If you would have paid attention in school."What are you – the nerds?? Very unappealing..

Melina 12. March 2018 at 20:17

I also don’t know how so many people don’t understand the little difference between seit and seid. It is very easy to remember.

Zorro Rodriguez 23. March 2018 at 13:52

Unnertreglich here! You are such smart asses. On both sides. The operators of the site and the commentators. Ant-fucker, or is that written together? Ant Fuckers. The attitude that is revealed here is to puke. You would be better off in National Socialism than in the here and now. Something so caustic. Always improving the others, nagging, reprimanding! Bad!
