What got me stumped recently:

  • Just couldn't figure out how to solve things just by scans in Theano metaprogramming language too)

comment What is an appropriate response to お疲{つか}れ様{さま}です in non-work situations?
Previously I too suggested どうも. But actually, as the commenter above said, there is no such thing. Either you repeat it, or you say nothing.

comment How is the name “河内” pronounced, コーチ or コウチ?
The problem with this answer is that it still doesn't address as to whether こ is separated from う or not (which is why the questioner asked whether it's コー or コ・ウ)

comment What does かの日 mean?
@Ataraxia Indeed, so is the かの in the かの日 above! By the way, the kanji for both あの and かの is 彼の (hardly used in formal setting though).

comment What is the role of の in 「お父さんのバカ!」
Ah then you mean using お父さん as genitive in this case adds a quality to the word バカ, making バカ refer specifically to お父さん? It's more like saying "the idiot, who/which is Dad,". Hmm, interesting idea.

comment What is the role of の in 「お父さんのバカ!」
Wow, if you put it that way, it sounds like "You dadditive idiot!" or "You fatheric fool!" instead. That is, to rewrite in Japanese, 「あなたがどれくらいのバカかというと、お父さんレベルというところか」

comment Can I use [自称]{じしょう}ほど for things other than namesake?
You're right; I think the correct one was 自称+名詞+ほど. I've confused the usage. And even if the 名詞 is to be omitted, there must be a claim/self-styling previously, to which this 自称 refers to, and seems to always be followed with modifier+ものはない。

I share the same impression too! But unless non-関西人 can confirm that they seldom use ど…

comment Is there a non-katakana word for “cash flow”?
But of course, 家計 is for 家計. You won't be using that for business cashflow, but I figure my heart will feel a bit warm if I can get one business to use it.

comment How can I differentiate between “risk” and “danger” in Japanese?
Yeah katakana makes me sad too, especially if there's a valid non-katakana word for it. But in this case…

comment What are common mistakes made by Japanese kombini employees speaking “manual keigo” (バイト敬語)
@StuartWoodward Rather than coining it, I may have heard it somewhere and mistook it as a popular grammatical error. I still am trying to recall the other incorrect 敬語 usage.

Look up the meaning of 得意. We sometimes call regulars as お得意さん among others (like 常連さん etc)
