comment 「思っているようです。」or 「思っている。」 for describing another person's opinion
One might hear "According to Bob, he thinks that ~~~." in spoken English but it would be broken, just it would be in Japanese. The structure 「Bobさんの話では〜そうです。」might be what you are looking for?

comment 明日が/明日は, what's the difference?
I was not sure before but I think the response to 火曜日はいつ(ですか) would be 火曜日は明日ですor more likely, just 明日 (or perhaps even more likely, 月曜日の次の日(?)). I struggle to think of a situation where anyone would say 明日が火曜日です but it is the answer to いつが火曜日ですか. Both are grammatical but not very natural.

It is good topic but why are you confused? (Can you add some examples where you think they are interchangeable / you can't see the difference?)

comment Understanding かなでたり
This question appears to be off-topic because (I quote from the site guidance):"we are not willing to provide a translation service for cases where a simple dictionary search combined with understanding the basics of Japanese sentence construction would suffice"

comment Problem understanding 今度一度
One answer could be, "from the fragment you have given we can guess but not be sure". If you added the context instead of just beginning with 「でも..」you would have got a much shorter, quicker answer (and it would be more helpful for others because a literal translation of exactly what Tom says does not really work).

@Choko: Well done. It is very clear from the context. You are too kind.

@Choko: Me too but without more context I could not be as certain as you can.

Thanks. I can't help thinking this is the real test of understanding.

I made your title a little more explanatory for future reference. I hope you don't mind.

It would be helpful if you could give everyday English equivalents under your literal translations. (And if that is not straight forward, say so - in this case we might need a bit more context from the OP.)

comment 明日が/明日は, what's the difference?
And how would you ask in Japanese, いつが火曜日ですか or ...?

comment What is the て-form of みます?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is very basic and does not warrant becoming a question. It detracts from the overall quality of the forum.

(1) Can you indicate where this sentence is? (2) From your knowledge, what do you expect it to say?
