comment Please help me understand this grammar: ようになるだけではなくて
I thought 'in order to be able to read the book' would be 本を読めるために and 本を読めるようになる would mean 'to acquire the ability to read the book'

comment Dates, version strings, timestamps and numbers in Japanese. How are they formatted?
This question shouldn't be closed, I believe it falls under the "usage" part of "Japanese language and its usage".

comment Difference between verb types (verbal nouns, transitive & intransitive: eg 開始, 始める and 始まる)
I like this question because it is a good simple example of the three main verb types in Japanese, verbal nouns, transitive verbs and intransitive verbs. But I suspect this type of question about verbs has been asked before, just with a different verb triplet.

comment Kanji for native Japanese concepts: Kun'yomi spanning multiple morphemes
@dainichi just a formal grammar that would, for example, take 湖 as input and output 水海 and so forth for each entry on the list. actually i don't know why i asked, such a set of rules would be pretty useless. i think the little "->" just reminded me of transforms.
