comment Can 野郎{やろう} really have that many meanings?
@sawa: Would you be willing to move this line from your comment into the main answer: "probably, 野郎 is not used in isolation as an insult word. When it is an insult word, it is used in one of the few fixed expressions like この野郎 and 馬鹿野郎." It seems to me to be the most accurate description of 野郎, so I feel like it shouldn't be buried deep in the comments. I wouldn't want to edit your answer myself, and I wanted to be sure you agree with this, as it does differ from your original answer.

comment Why is 領土{りょうど} more suitable than 領域{りょういき} in this JLPT practise question?
Thank you for answering, bit I don't know if this really does it. The original sentence does not specifically say it was a land battle. For all we know, the kingdom lost some coast, sea area, and hey, why not the airspace above? Maybe there was an airport and so they've lost strategic access to air routes. In both these definitions, to me they lend themselves equally well to the concept of "domain", so I'm still not seeing why 領土{りょうど} is the clear winner.

comment Does 被【かぶ】る have any relation to “cover”?
@Matt: Can you provide furigana for 観智院本名義抄, and maybe say what it is? I can't determine the correct reading just be looking at it. Nor does it come up right away in a Google search.
