comment Alignment of people's names
@Dave: I added the image for the other link in my answer. However, as the first link mentions: 5字取りのやり方もそれぞれ違っていたりしますし, I think it will be very hard to find the exact way Sawa describes, unless we start talking about a specific movie and do stuff like contact the company that made it, etc...

Just as in English, we would consult a thesaurus, in Japanese, you can consult a 類語辞典.

@sawa: I found a link, I believe the case you are talking about is either 5字取り or 7字取り pattern B.

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).

comment Less-approximate and more-approximate forms of loan words
@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?)
