comment How can I differentiate between “risk” and “danger” in Japanese?
Dave M G, to avoid katakana because it's not Japanese is a very Western way of thinking. If you want to really feel Japanese, one way is to use katakana words the way Japanese use them, not as they are used in English. For example, if you say 仕事のパワー, you are using パワー in a very Japanese way to mean 'ability'. This is katakana, but it's definitely not English. So, it's not the use of katakana that should be a problem, it's how you use it!

Nice, Chocolate, I didn't think of 重たい. But I can't think of any others.

comment Is 眠たい an adjective?
There is a somewhat similar case with 煙たい. (Conjugations can be described as 'irregular'. I'm not sure if it's useful to talk of derivations as 'irregular'.

comment When to use ご返事 and お返事?
Actually, 返事 is not a word of Chinese origin. It is a 'pseudo-word of Chinese origin'. It's not found in Chinese and is probably the Chinese reading of a Japanese word.

comment How to speak in Kansai dialect
Of course there are patterns. If I remember rightly, it involves a shift to the right (or left) by one mora -- this was discovered by a Japanese linguist. In an intellectual sense that is fine, but it isn't going to help you very much in actually memorising the accent of words.

comment What does it mean to be “over a law”?
'In terms of' sounds better than 'from the viewpoint of'.
