comment Asking a question with “da” and “datta”
There's probably a lot more I should have added, but I was trying to keep it short…

comment What are the meanings of the words 「えぐりこむ」and「べし」?
I think to be precise we should probably distinguish 助動詞 (e.g. 行きます or 行かない or 打つべし) from 補助動詞 (e.g. ~てしまう or ~ている) from V2 verbs that form 複合動詞 (e.g. 飲み込む or 食べ終わる). Unfortunately I don't know a short way to say that last one―in English or in Japanese!

comment Often go to do something
I think パブに is an argument of 行く, which licenses a に locative, not a で locative. The intervening phrase 飲みに is an adjunct of purpose, describing why 行く is taking place.

@David_W. It's a good question :-) I just didn't understand what you meant at first. Sorry about that.

comment Difference between “地主” and “家主”, and their relationship with 不動産屋?
@broccoliforest I was just confused, because when I read the question, I figured that the word native speakers of English would choose was irrelevant . . . I guess I understand now.

Did you mean to write "native Japanese speakers"?
