comment What's the grammar behind お忘れなきよう?
Why お忘れ「の」ないように rather than just お忘れないように?

comment 童貞が許されるのは小学生までだよね - translation of まで
made never means "even". Sentences that use "made" may have the connotations of "even", but it's not created by that word. If it is surprising or unexpected that something is possible until a certain limit, then there is the sense of "even". "Even" corresponds to words/constructions like "sae" and "-noni". "[Not] even if" to "-de/-te mo". and such.

comment How should I choose between [知]{し}る and わかる?
No, 分かる does not simply mean to understand and that's all there is to it. If someone asks you what time it is, do you reply, "I don't understand?" if you do not have the time? That means you don't understand the question.

comment The process behind キャ in loanwords from English
You're right; the front velarization of in these words is not unlike the aspiration of a leading P sound. This is a reasonable hypothesis; thanks for digging up the paper and citations.

comment に particle and passive form… multiple meanings?
@Nathan Same problems in English. By sunrise, everyone will know he was killed by a bullet, fighting by the side of his comrades.

comment Why do we use 〜ないで instead of 〜なくて before auxiliary ください?
It's for the same reason why we don't say "not to do that and please" instead of "don't do that please".

comment does the structure「(verb stem)がする」 exist?
This is probably a semantic restriction. If 笑い was some environmental situation that could happen, then 笑いがする would make sense. 笑いがする is probably like saying "it is laughy in here".
