comment Why are a high proportion of basic Japanese words written in hiragana?
Actually, the rest of those are derived from words that can be written with kanji: 御早う御座います・今日は・有難う御座います But it's usually recommended that you write these words in kana.

comment How to describe something as hypocritical
@broccoliforest It seems the meaning of hypocrisy changed over the years. The OED gives its original meaning as "The assuming of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, with dissimulation of real character or inclinations [...]", but over time it came to be used the way Merriam-Webster describes it. I think that when bilingual dictionary editors originally added an entry for 偽善 = hypocrisy, it made more sense than it does today, now that the meaning has shifted in English.

comment Volitional + というのだった?
@chepe263 Note that という is a complementizer grammaticalized from と+言う and doesn't always follow a literal quote.

comment 収入 or 給料? What should be used when talking about salary or income?
@oldergod Yes. You can have income from lots of things besides salary. For example, you can have hourly income, or an inheritance, or you can sell stock options, etc. None of those are salary, but all of those are income.

comment Is [舐]{な}める a stative verb?
@Joe I can't figure out what you think is strange about 知る in that example. Maybe you could ask it as a separate question.
