I'm a software engineer. One of the rare species who uses Python at work in Japan and also work from home.

Currently I'm working on:

  • Becoming fluent in Lojban and also creating learning tools along the way
  • Becoming a lucid dreamer

I have lived in Massachusetts, Kyoto, Fukuoka and Tokyo.

comment How to make sense of this construct - “<名詞>、それは<名詞句>”
Ah, that explains the slight difference in emphasis I felt between the left dislocation examples and the ...、それは... sentences. Regarding 体言止め, inverting the order is not essential; just dropping the final particle(s) of sentences like ..<名詞>だ / ..<名詞>する will do. Here's a blog article consisting entirely of 体言止め.

In case we had different things in mind: I was thinking of something like this (moving that section completely to this answer). Otherwise, I'm going to start the same argument over there :D

Checking out... んー, I think the section "About 覚える and 見覚える" belongs to this answer.

Yes, you can delete your answer, but it's up to you to decide. This question on meta "Deleting downvoted answer?" looks relevant. In general, keep it if you feel the information it provides is correct. ("meta" is a place to ask questions about how to use this site.) Hope that helps.

Yay, a consensus! Yes, it's ok and I would go that route too. There'll be a checkbox titled "Answer your own question" when adding a question, which lets you post an answer at the same time. If I were you, I'd try to think back to the time when you first wondered about "remembrance and recall" and pose it as a question.
