comment Difference between 何の~ and どんな~
@Chocolate: Ah... ok..., yeah, guess you're right... fixing the 車 stuff. But I heard this conversation: A) そんなわるい事をやったのは、目黒さんだった。 B)まじで???何のために??? So I thought I could translate the sentence in that way... What do you think about this? (I am just very curious, please do not misunderstand my intentions, I am not saying you are wrong)

comment Difference between 何の~ and どんな~
@Chocolate: Yeah, they all are acceptable ways to say the same things... with different levels of politeness of course. There are many ways to use どんな and 何, sometimes you can switch between them (Japanese usually do). Once I questioned a Japanese guy why in a sentence he used どんな since I thought it was better to use 何... He replied me that it was the same!

@Nicolas: Please give us something more to think about :) We need context... I measn, ok, declining an invitation... but was it by text message? is it an email? is it a conversation?

comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
@istrasci: I found some examples, but using 照らす just to refer to: "golden days", "those nice days...". Really out of context...

comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
About the テラワロス... The context does not really let this term being applied here! I don't see any reason (logic reason) why someone who cannot go to a place where he wants to go (but cannot because of his job) should start laughing until he rolls on the floor (while keeping on laughing...).

comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
Well, it is supposed to be a given name. There are even kanji for that one. The sentence itself is complete, the final テラス is something more. Japanese usually use to put their name at the and of the sentence. I think it is a given name!

comment How do you say “Please tell your wife to get well soon”?
Well, I have a bad feeling about this question... I think verb 祈る should not be used and 治る should be used instead...

comment What's the difference between には and では
Well, it is similar... duplicate means "exact duplicate", and this is not the case (imho).
