日本語大好き

I'm just an enthusiast in Japanese language. I took three years of Japanese courses in college, enrolled in Japanese House Program where the residents use Japanese in daily lives, yet I feel I'm still not fluent in it.

p/s: Sorry for churning out so many questions. I'm trying to help JLU beta to improve the questions-per-day ratio :P

p/s2: I usually hold off upvoting answers to my questions until at least 2-3 answers have been posted, or until some time has lapsed.

p/s3: As long as I can, I will not downvote a question/answer, and if in the end I have to downvote, I will add a comment.

よろしくおねがいします

comment “To call” or “To receive a call”
There is 電話の掛け手 for "caller" and 電話の受け手 for "callee", but I'm not sure if they are commonly used or not.

comment 抱った vs 抱いた and 書った vs 書いた
Looks like someone already fixed 抱った to 抱いた in the page for 抱く but it is still for 書った in the page for 書く.

comment Are kanji characters made up of radicals only or could they contain strokes that are not radicals?
@TsuyoshiIto Let's put it this way: if we have a list of all semantic Japanese kanji radicals, does it cover all components of all possible kanji characters? That is to say, even if a component of a specific kanji character is not its semantic radical, are there any other kanji characters which contain that component as their semantic radical?

@GöteSvanholm If you want to compare languages, take up comparative linguistics. If you want to learn the language, empty your cup first ;)

@Göte What works in one language might not work in another. I don't think we should force the construct of one language onto another.

@sawa I think あなは is a typo of あなたは.

comment What does the だと mean in 日本だと?
やすいだと is ungrammatical. だ cannot follow after verbs or adjectives.

comment What kind of conjugation is 済{す}ませた?
@dotnetN00b. You are right but 済ませる is also a root verb on its own. It's not uncommon to have a verb that looks the same as conjugated forms of other verbs. Examples: 任せる (root vs potential), 生まれる (root vs passive), 切れる (root v potential) etc.

comment Repeating the vowel sound of the mora that precedes gemination in songs
Thanks for the extra explanation on the reason for the lengthening. It totally makes sense :)
