comment Using なるほど (naruhodo) and やっぱり (yappari) in the same situation
You mean there is a little bit of suspicion in なるほど? And, in term of neutrality: そうですか > なるほど > やっぱり? >____<

comment 「~たじゃない」 expression in spoken Japanese
さっき食べなかったの? and 食べたんじゃないの? are different. The latter implies that the speaker has a knowledge/suspicion that the person he speaks to already ate before, similar to "Isn't it the case that you already ate? (because I can smell curry from your mouth etc)"

comment Using なるほど (naruhodo) and やっぱり (yappari) in the same situation
So, can we say なるほど is as neutral as "I see" in English, unlike the biased やっぱり?

comment Is there a rule for when to use くらい vs ぐらい?
@Derek What I mean is that both どれ and どの can take both くらい vs ぐらい. どれくらい, どれぐらい, どのくらい, どのぐらい ..

+1 good question. I was actually thinking about asking this question too. Especially for question words どれ and どの, they seem to take both forms ...

Your answer, if really correct, confirms my initial intuition, that is it is between "up to" vs "about".

comment Is it ok to use ~て下さりました instead of ~ていただきました?
I think it's easier to use ingroup vs outgroup to choose between kureru and ageru, if you have the grasp on those concepts
