Ungefähr wie wir in den USA dem Namen unsern Heimatschutzministeriums gegenüber desensibilisiert worden sind. In diesem Fall klingt er aber weniger beunruhigend in anderen Sprachen, wo es nur ein Ministerium für "innere" oder "nationale" Sicherheit ist.
Kinda of how we in the USA have been desensitised to the name of Homeland Security. Though in this case it generally sounds less disturbing in other languages, where it's only a department for "interior" or "national" security.

എന്റെ അഭിപ്രായത്തിൽ "obvious" എന്ന വാക്ക് ഉപയോഗിക്കുന്നതിൽ ഒരു കുഴപ്പവുമില്ല.
[jɛnˈde əbɪˈpraːjət̪ɪl ˈɔːbʋijəs ɛn̪ˈn̪a ˈʋaːk ʊbəˈjoːgikʲʊn̪n̪əd̪ɪl oˈɾu kɔɻʊˈpəʋʊm ɪlˈla]
There's nothing wrong with using the word "obvious" in my opinion.

Obvious may be frequently used in a pointed fashion, but to me it is not an informal word by any means.

These are stylistic corrections. I used ''mineurs de fond' because I found it more commonplace than 'mineurs de charbon'. I suppose it was a bit of an overextension.

I know that 'ils font grève' works but the context to me felt like it needed the definite article to put an emphasis on the action of striking.

I learned that ordinal number rule long ago and was never corrected on it except some people saying it's silly to insist on 'La Seconde guerre mondiale.' I also prefer 'd'abord' to the mouthful of 'premièrement.' Notice I corrected 'firstly' in English, too. It's a stylistic thing.

If you are going to contribute to our thread I welcome you to correct the French texts as a native speaker. I was only doing it because no one else was.

Tienes razón. Pero, pienso que correcciones de estilo pueden agobiar a alguién que no habla el idioma muy bien. Prefiero centrarme con cosas que son incorrectas sin duda.
You're right. But I think that stylistic corrections can be overwhelming to someone who doesn't speak the language very well yet. I'd rather focus on stuff that's undoubtedly wrong.

Oft benutze ich zwei Farben: Rot für unzweifelhaft grammatische Fehler und etwas nicht so grell für Unangebrachtheiten bzw. stilistische Fehler.
Often I'll use two colours: red for indisputably grammatical errors and something less harsh for infelicities and stylistic failures.

Wann soll ich benutzen -es und -s im die deutschen schwachen Dingwörter Wesfall?
When should I use -es and -s in the genitive of German strong nouns? (The end of my German abilities.)
Wikipedia tells they should be used rrespectively with one syllable and bigger words, but Wiktionary gives both forms.
