@TokyoNagoya Oh, I didn't think to talk about verb+たい separately. Thank you for pointing that out and describing it separately in your answer!

comment What does ぴろーん mean?
It's okay to discuss taboo language (although it's understandable if some users want to avoid doing so). After all, taboo language is still language. One caveat: we should try to keep question titles "safe for work" in case they're promoted on other Stack Exchange sites, which people may be using from work. (The question istrasci links to would have to have its title censored if it were asked today.)

comment Which way should you review vocabulary using flashcards?
Study method questions are off-topic, but I'll try moving this to meta and see if the community is okay with leaving it open there.

comment How do parents obscure spoken messages in front of their children in Japanese?
@TokyoNagoya I think that perhaps they're referring to バビ語.

comment What is the Origin of です?
でございます is a popular theory, but no one's entirely sure. See the linked question for discussion.

comment how did 公 (こう) come to be derogatory
Similar things have happened with a number of words in Japanese. For example, お前 and 貴様 used to be honorific.

comment Etymology of もん・もの
@Pacerier I think that some 終助詞, 接続助詞, and 間投助詞 can follow だ.

Oh, that comment wasn't intended as a translation, more of an explanation :-)

There isn't much rain in Tucson right now. The drought is going to continue, and they don't have a lot of water stored up, so this may be a problem.
