comment How close was the Japanese writing system from becoming abolished after World War II?
@DaveMG: This meta question I thought was relevant. Quoting the most up-voted answer: As written, it doesn't explicitly say they have to be learning about Japanese, as long as they are discussing the Japanese language.

comment How to say “quarter to” or “quarter past” some hour?
In 九州 it would be 3時前15分.

@istrasci: Out of context, it's difficult to explain the fine nuances.

comment Thank you for X: ~をありがとうございます
@Matt: Actually, the way you explained it in your comment was what I intended. However, I guess my explanation didn't come out that way...

comment Thank you for X: ~をありがとうございます
@Matt: While you make a good point, keep in mind the shortened for ありがとう can mean both, and since in modern times ありがとうございます simply is a polite form for ありがとう, it would naturally fit that を can be used even if the original meaning of ございます is technically not allowed to do that.

Thanks, I have often noticed a lot of published books about Japanese written in English have false information (first paragraph of 2.1.5).

comment Difference between 丸い and 円い
+1: I tend to agree, just remember there are certain "special" words that use 円い instead, for example 円い月 and 円い人柄.

comment Can there be such a thing as のんでましょう?
Tsuyoshi Ito gave the correct answer, so technically you marked the wrong one as the correct answer IMO.

comment Can there be such a thing as のんでましょう?
I feel like it has the sense of 飲んで待ちましょう, but I can't tell why.

comment Difference between 丸い and 円い
@dainichi: Unfortunately, I don't have any evidence, so maybe I shouldn't say it is wrong, just more common as you mention. Also, you make a good point about まる only can be written as 丸, that is the reason we have 日の丸 and not 日の円 because the 訓読み for まる is 丸 only.
