@broccoliforest: I had forgotten の thanks! The textbook says: 〜を手段としてある行為をする。硬い言い方。日常・具体的な道具や方法などには使わない。

comment Is こればよかった correct or not?
The Tanos JLPT list seems serious and contains これば so I was wondering which one is correct. Chiebukuro is not always reliable, especially when there is only one answer.

comment Meaning of 玉ヒュン
@Ash: I haven't found any definition in the first page of Google. Now that I search again, I can find your netyougo link (10th result) but it does not use the same spelling that's why I dismissed it.

comment Does this Japanese sentence sound right?
@TokyoNagoya: Yes, I wanted to express the fact that she acted on an impulse (I presume) and that there is no coming back (I presume). Maybe 乗ってしまった or something else would express that better?

comment How to say “Hey hurry up! you'll be late!”?
Are you with the person who is the getting late (and going together)? Or are you waiting at the meeting point? Or are you an non-implicated third party near none of the implicated parties?

comment Origin and usage of あせた
It might be dialect, but I hear it often and it really sounds like あせた not あせった. I guess people don't write it, but there are still many Google occurrences if that proves anything: google.com/…

comment Origin and usage of あせた
@ssb: Could be! I have no idea about its origin and kanji, in fact. Also, I have no idea why this question gets downvoted. It is used in Japanese, so it should not be off-topic here.

comment How can I ask what kind of evening one is having?
@TokyoNagoya: Thanks for your feedback. I was thinking about 今日楽しんでる (which is not rare) but I should not have adapted to 今晩.
