comment How would you say “talking shop” in Japanese?
@Tim Interesting. I asked some other people if they had heard of it, but none had. Is it old?

I've never heard of "talking shop", is that a phrase used in a specific area or region?

comment How did 家, 手, and 士 come to be included in the names of professions?
@Gradius: How will I learn anything if I only memorize something? If you don't think there is a consistent rule then why not make that an answer?

This is why I used specific examples like 歌手. I cannot understand the role 手 plays or why it was chosen for this profession.

comment What does 「のいう」 mean in this sentence?
Ahh so it means "something that he said/says"? Or is it like "a phrase that is his own"?

comment How should we translate double negatives/negatives that are unnatural in English?
