comment I can't stand 立つ【た・つ】: Do all its meanings derive from “stand”?
That's exactly the kind of answer I was hoping for. Very insightful, thank you. I would ordinarily give it a little time to mull it over and see if it works in different contexts. However, SE tells me my bounty is going to end in 3 hours, so what the heck - 200 bounty points for you, both for having a sensible answer, awesome drawing skills ;) , and stepping up (standing?) with an answer!

comment Is the 強い with a ロ instead of ム on top a valid kanji in Japanese?
That's much more clear. Thanks for editing!

On my computer, the two characters you are referring to are being rendered exactly the same. I imagine I'm not alone in that. Perhaps you could provide a link to images that display the two different kanji or something like that?

@TsuyoshiIto: Really? Huh. Interesting. Though, if the origin is the same, I guess I'm still on the hunt for the aspect of たつ that I'm not getting.

@TsuyoshiIto: Whoops, typos. It is 努力{どりょく}, not 動力{どうりょく}. I've corrected the question.

By the way, the furigana is mine, not the book's, so please correct me if I've messed up somewhere.

comment Does には in this sentence imply vagueness of the source?
@Hyperworm: I wondered about that. I didn't think the doctor was actually inviting my friend to go play in the hospital futsal league ;) . However, I wasn't sure enough that this was the come/go switch that often causes confusion, so I wasn't confident enough to translate it as "You should be off playing futsal", which is the sentiment I think it really has.
