I've just finished a 9.5 month hitchhiking trip around Asia, learning bits of the languages on the road as needed.

I'm now back home between trips.

comment What does it mean when この is in front of a personal pronoun?
Voting down because it's impossible to tell if the answerer overlooked that the OP is talking about pronouns rather than nouns like "guy". If the distinction between nouns and pronouns in cases like this in Japanese is so different to English then that needs to be part of the answer since a learner would never guess it and we are here to learn.

comment Have you tried XYZ before?
When you see a word like koregusu and have no idea what it means one useful thing to do is use a website like this: google.com/search?q=koregusu - it's just an example anyway to try to come up with a range of uses in the expectation that translation is almost never one word to one word.

comment What is the difference between 護る and 守る?
This looks like a case of either a) a word that be written with a choice of kanji that alters the nuance, or b) two homonyms / homophones - different words that coincidentally have the same pronunciation. You might want to add the "kanji choice" or "homonyms" tag.

comment Translation check and meaning help please
You should really include something about the specific problem in the title. Stack Exchange questions should help others besides the person first asking. Having generic titles does not help this happen.

comment How to say pork loin in Japanese
You shouldn't really expect to find the same cuts of meat across cultures. Even between countries with the same language the cuts can vary and the words for similar cuts can vary. Much more than you would expect.

comment Can Chinese and Japanese calligraphy of the same character be identified as such?
In this case I would've upvoted an answer that explicitly says the calligraphers styles do not differ but only the traits the OP mentioned by ruling them out differ... If that is indeed what you are saying.

comment Why is coffee with shochu or awamori called コーヒー割{わ}り “split / divided coffee”?
It seems to actually be an equivalent somehow of "mixer" or "mix" in English, but not in any directly translatable way (-:
