comment I have no idea what this is saying. Can you have two topics in a sentence?
The lack of strict rules for 読点 make it rather difficult for foreigners to understand at times. Thanks for clearing this up.

comment Why does 「頭にきた」signify being mad at something?
@Flaw: Yes that's true. However, that phrase isn't necessarily associated with being "irritated". I thought it was used in the context of someone being prideful and telling them to be more humble.

comment Why can 髪の毛 only refer to hair on your head?
@TsuyoshiIto: I don't see your point. Apparently, this is a concept that is so obvious there shouldn't be any questions asked about it?

comment Why can 髪の毛 only refer to hair on your head?
This makes more sense. I was told that if it's not 髪の毛, then it would just be called 毛. But if you're saying that it's actually 腕の毛 etc., then I can understand.

comment Is being called an オタク derogatory?
@user1205935 Oh I see. Well, I suppose it depends on the context. My presumption of it was exactly like the definition Teno posted. Which at first glance looks like a good thing, but there seems to be more to it.

@user1205935 That is what I'm asking. I'm not Japanese, so I don't know how Japanese think about オタク.

comment What does コミュニケーションがとれる mean?
I don't understand how "a team where all members speak a lot to each others" is representative of having communication skills. Is it similar to "a team of members who communicate with each other well"?

comment How do I say “course duration” in Japanese?
If each course is four years long, then there's a problem. Did you mean "all engineering disciplines"?

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?
