comment Why do we use は rather than に in インタネットがとても遅い時は、切腹したいです?
Then you should just say “The two sentences become the same if translated to English.” The meaning of a sentence in one language is not decided by its translation to another language.

comment Why do we use は rather than に in インタネットがとても遅い時は、切腹したいです?
In what sense do the two sentences in the question mean the same thing? They are used in different contexts, and I cannot think of a circumstance in which they can be used interchangeably.

Hint: Look up 携帯 in a dictionary. It has another meaning than “cellphone.”

comment How has Japanese kanji and kana usage changed since 1945
Using words may not be as easy as you initially think. You may have to consider a few potential issues: 1. A word can consist of kanji and kana letters: 走る, 高い, 歩きスマホ, and so on. 2. Do you want to give both content words and function words equal weights? 3. Not everyone agrees on the definition of words. For example, some people treat 静かな as one word while others treat it as two words. These may not matter for your purpose in the end, but just wanted to make sure you are aware of them.

Are you sure that you want to know the proportion of words? The proportion of letters should be easier to compute (though you still need some corpora).

comment 「というのである」 basically same as 「ということである」?
To be fair, question 12590 is about comparison between ~するのは and ~するというのは rather than comparison between の and こと, and is not very relevant here. A much more relevant question is japanese.stackexchange.com/q/1395. See “Cases where only こと is allowed: […] 2. When the following clause is one of だ, です, or である” in Derek Schaab’s answer there.

comment Is 私は本があなたをたすけよみます correct?
You posted your question with title “Is this correct?” This title is extremely vague; there are probably hundreds of questions which this title can refer to! When you ask a question next time, please try to attach a specific title to your question.

comment Meaning of 修士論文として提出しました論文を遅らせて頂きます
遅らせていただく raises the person who does 遅らせる, just as 書いていただく raises the person who does 書く. Therefore it is incorrect to use in this context. As Shoko commented on the question, it is much more likely that 遅らせて in the question is a typo for 送らせて.
