comment How can you divide verbs into conjugation groups easily?
@Blavius There are a number of other irregular verbs, but they're traditionally lumped into one of the first two categories. I'm not sure why.

It's actually /æ/ in British accents. See the Longman Pronunciation Dictionary.

comment Why can a single word have more than one Kanji?
頷く, of course, is much more common than 肯く or 首肯く. And kana is also commonly used, perhaps because none of these three ways of writing the word in kanji are listed on the 常用漢字表.

comment Maths sentences: 足す and 掛ける
If we have to overlay English parts of speech on 1 + 2 = 3, why not call + a coordinator? But really, it seems like we're just pronouncing the symbols as English words, and + is really an infix operator, not a preposition.
