comment Strange Japanese Character
I tried looking up しょわー but I couldn't find it. I wonder if there's a dictionary of onomatopoeia with sounds like this learners could use when they're missing from regular dictionaries.

@Kronpas If you look up the phrase 口を利く, I bet it won't be listed as archaic.

comment break down ~いていいと思ってる
@Kronpas Probably what happened is the copy-and-paste didn't have any way to represent き as furigana, so it unfortunately got turned into a regular character.

comment why isn't “そなわち” in dictionaries? what does it mean?
Moderators are just people who try to help the site function the way it's supposed to. Although I have a ♦ diamond next to my name (indicating that I'm a moderator), there are other users on the site who are more knowledgeable than me but don't have ♦ diamonds :-)

revised It seems that 渡る is categorized as 自動詞 (intransitive verb), yet it is frequently used with を. Why?
Fix bold markup, switch to quote formatting

@EiríkrÚtlendi I think those are OCR errors.

comment ら抜き言葉: Why doesn't 忘れれれば exist?
I segmented it as 〜られ+れば because I think that's what modern linguists tend to do (calling it -(r)eba to indicate at once how it attaches to consonant-stem and vowel-stem verbs), but if you prefer, you can segment it as 〜られれ+ば, which I think is how it's done in Japanese school grammar.

@EiríkrÚtlendi But if I look up られる, the dictionary says the 仮定形 is られれ, and if I look up ば, it says ば attaches to the 仮定形 of 活用語, so 〜られれ+ば.

If you aren't familiar with furigana yet, you might need to start with some easier reading material.
