comment How to tell the difference between 先{せん} and 先{さき}?
@Eric The program you're using is attempting to match up definitions from EDICT with examples from the Tanaka Corpus, but it's not doing so successfully.

comment の in Verb+のじゃない: Nominalizer or Explanatory?
@rintaun Genitive の (not the nominalizer) does contract to ん in some other circumstances, e.g. in 店ん中 or 雨ん中.

comment Most correct “noun suffix” for “living in X” or “resident of X”?
I think the OP was aware that 'suffix' was perhaps not ideal (hence their first sentence), so they tried their best to explain precisely what they meant by it. I don't think people should downvote just because 'suffix' isn't the right technical term, since it's clear what they're asking.

comment What is this form : Verb + はせん?
@非回答者 Well, I didn't actually say that the character was speaking a Western dialect. I was just using it as a label for the form. (As I said in my comment, "I don't mean to imply that it's limited to Western dialects.") Thanks to everyone for elaborating in the comments, though. I'm sure Urukann will find that helpful.

comment Do all words need a particle?
なぜ is an adverb. Compare another question word, 誰【だれ】, which is not.
