Hello! I'm learning Japanese!

comment how to read kanji
What do you mean "pronounced together with"? Are you asking about 暁家 or 家暁...?

comment Is there an online resource which takes a Japanese text or a link and provides its Hepburn romanization?
By the way, I'm afraid you'll have a rather difficult time learning Japanese if you ignore the writing system entirely.

Hello! Welcome to Japanese.SE! I'm afraid this question is off-topic here. We'd be happy to help if you have questions about grammar, pronunciation, the meaning of an expression, etc.

comment Difference between 貸す and 貸し出す
Please only ask one question per question. If you'd like to ask about 撮る and 写る, please do so in a separate question.

comment Regarding the nature of the forum + question regarding 日本語の字幕
I don't think this is really on-topic here, but I can share some links: White Rabbit graded readers - Audiobooks with transcripts - Anime subtitles - Drama subtitles. A lot of anime is free to watch online legitimately (e.g. at CrunchyRoll). There are other options if you can spend some money on importing things or if you can go to Japan . . .

comment How can you express a “double causative”?
Can you proofread your answer and make sure you typed what you meant to...?

comment Combining a noun phrase with an adjective
@MarioCarneiro I think that you could ask about 先週に versus plain 先週 in a separate question and get a more detailed answer about it.

comment 「を」 object marker in this 受身形{うけみけい} sentence
@comeauch Don't forget that there are two types of passives in Japanese, direct and indirect (also called the adversative or suffering passive).

comment How can I say “very little” in Japanese
@Tim I think that it originally meant something like 本当の and came to be an intensifier for words like 少し expressing small quantities.

comment How can I say “very little” in Japanese
@Tim By the way, I think it isn't normally written with the kanji 本. I think it's normally written ほんの少し like in your answer.

comment Trouble understanding grammar in 「名を、柊という。」
(EDIT) I think that kanji express meaning, so when a word isn't used with the meaning its kanji express, it's better to write it in kana. That's why grammaticalized words tend to be written in kana (because they've lost the literal meaning that the kanji would express).

comment Some questions regarding ~てくる (edited)
I think your question about the durative/punctual contrast would be better off asked separately from your question about ~てくる.

comment Why is Danny written & pronounced ダニー and not ダニ?
Compare コピー 'copy', コリー 'Collie', ダミー 'dummy', バギー 'buggy', バニー 'bunny', ヘビー 'heavy', ベビー 'baby', ルビー 'ruby', etc.

comment What's the reading of 傾げる? かしげる or かたげる?
@virmaior I think /g/ occurred later in the development of Japanese than /k/, and a common source of /g/ in native words is from prenasalization, so it seems like a rather plausible guess.
