comment Pronunciation of す in です and the end of ます verbs
Can anyone offer any particular guidance for people speaking Japanese as a foreign language Use what other people use. Japan has many dialects, and everyone speaks differently.

comment Difference between ほとんど~ない, めったに~ない and まれ
@sawa: Thanks for the comments, I agree with what you said (will update my post later). Question: Do you think there is any difference between テレビをほとんど見ない and テレビをめったに見ない, I feel like the former is better (but maybe that is because its more common).

comment Transitive verb particles
When there is no the object is implied. For example, in ラップで包む I have no idea what you are wrapping.

comment How do I translate a pattern like “Tap to enter comment”?
Additional context would be helpful. Is this for tablet software?

comment Are the two kanjis 箇所 and 個所 interchange?
They are interchangeable when counting, but for example 危険箇所 is okay but 危険個所 is not, so they are not 100 percent interchangeable.

comment What counter words are used by animals for humans?
@Pacerier: ひとり、ふたり、etc. (at least when you say predator, I assuming you mean the act of hunting).

@TsuyoshiIto: Last comment: I understand your point of view (and agree that コンピューター is more common, but コンピュータ is also used often!), just remember that you are not the only native Japanese speaker in the world and many native Japanese speakers disagree with you!

@TsuyoshiIto: Well, it looks like we aren't the only ones arguing about this あなたは伸ばす派?伸ばさない派? :). (Also, do you know what a アクセント辞典 is?)

@TsuyoshiIto: To make sure I looked up コンピュータ in my 新明解日本語アクセント辞典 which is used by television broadcasters in Japan, and both 長音なし・あり are listed.

@TsuyoshiIto: Google gave me 2,080,000 hits for "コンピュータから" also バッテリ and センサ I hear a lot, but I work in a technical industry so I might have bias.

@TsuyoshiIto: I changed my key so that I hope everything matches up. Basically, 1) becomes original spelling in katakana, and 2) becomes newer spelling :). If you find any other problems let me know. Thanks!

@sawa: It's not a guess (although you might be right about the computer industry thing).

@Matt: Yeah, I did quite a bit of searching concerning the etymology of スムーズ and スムース, but I could not find anything conclusive (I will make a note that it might not be applicable and see if anyone can give any conclusive evidence about it). Thanks for the information.

@TsuyoshiIto: (1) Yes, you are correct (thank you for being an alert reader), I added an explanation. (2) The links state two things that I want to point out about "th", THもSもカタカナで書くと「ス」 and -th で終わる語は「ズ」でなく,「ス」の場合がほとんどのようです。, they both don't talk about the history, but I think those 2 points say something (If I find a history link, I will post it).
