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

comment Is「うそおっしゃい」to be taken literally here?
@EiríkrÚtlendi No, I think they're imperatives. By the way, there's some discussion here on pp.232-3 which might help you understand.

comment How do you respond to thanks given?
Presumably whoever downvoted feels that they aren't "really common expressions".

comment Email: 「回答」vs「返事」
In general, you should only convert something to kanji if you know that they're the right kanji and that it's appropriate to use them.

comment What is the difference between 腰掛ける and 座る?
@3to5businessdays The kanji 椅子 are pretty common, but surprisingly 椅 wasn't included on the 常用漢字表 until the 2010 revision, so before that I think the official recommendation was to avoid the kanji.

comment Properly translating a conditional
@EiríkrÚtlendi I would urge you to strike the Three Conditionals analysis from your brain (which is to say, that entire Wikipedia article), as it's a simplification for learners that's hopeless from a linguistics perspective. I'd recommend consulting your favorite reference grammar instead, e.g. The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language (2002), which spends about a hundred pages on conditionals.
