comment What are the rules for reading numbers before a foreign counter-word?
Maybe extrapolation does not always work? For instance 2パック is ふたパック and 2泊 is にはく. は might not be the same rule as ぱ though... for 1 both are ぱ and I guess it would be ひとパック and いっぱく (even though 1パック does not make much sense)

comment Can a Japanese person understand something written in traditional Chinese
I think that is an interesting question, and a combination of fefe's and your answers would be quite definitive. My two cents: a Japanese friend was surprised when I showed her classical Chinese zh-classical.wikipedia.org Apparently she could understand it much better than traditional Chinese.

comment What is 野菜ソムリエ?
I asked a Japanese friend, she said it is a skill that some talents learn to run shows on TV or radio. fefe's link also talks about 有名芸能人 in the first paragraph. Apparently they made the term popular. But indeed it is not intrinsically linked to entertainment. Accepting fefe's answer, it seems to be indeed a qualification in the field of nutrition, kind of "certified fruits/vegetables nutritionist".

comment Art: What is オブジェ and what is not?
@yadokari I was mistaken for "it depends", in my confusion I somehow read となる as による.

+1 Thanks a lot yadokari! Do you think Wiktionary's definition could be improved? It is the dictionary anyone can improve, after all :-)

comment Art: What is オブジェ and what is not?
@Dave: objet d'art is broader than オブジェ. A commode Louis XV can be an objet d'art but not an オブジェ, as far as I understand.

comment Pronunciation of 対応済
Thanks! It was a basic question, but strangely I could not find the answer on Google nor ALC. Sometimes rendaku is not applied, so I am never really sure for new composite words.
