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 are the differences between じ and ぢ, and ず and づ?
@Boaz: Aha thanks I was wondering about rendaku but forgot to put it in my questions. Do you know of any dialects that preserve a greater distinction? And does this mean that the sound change came after the widespread adoption of hiragana (whenever that was)?

comment Giving something to oneself
Whether the semantics is odd or rare, which is the same for all languages, does not prevent the possibility of making a grammatically correct statement. This is a perfectly valid question of grammar for a sentence that can easily be translated into the European languages I know. This is a language site, not a semantics site.

comment Is there a logic for deciding when to employ furigana?
I don't think this is a meta question at all. It's an important question about the usage of written Japanese. It should be the author and editor who make decisions about furigana, not the person operating the typesetting machine.
