comment Question about 相手
IOW: It is a "Partner to whom [one] can show your true self" (but thanks for the translation.) .....it is not really a 相手, more about distinguishing between the potential and the passive / polite form (られる/尊敬語)

comment pronounciation of じょ and よ
for english speakers jo (じょ)and yo (よ)are quite different. We often struggle with the extended う (eg じょ vs じょう). I think the Chinese struggle with し because they often pronounce it "si" but not being Chinese (Cantonese?) won't swear to this. This sounds similar to the trouble English speakers have with the spanish name Julio (which, to our ears,you pronounce "Hulio" ?)

comment What is なく・ない and why is it used?
Are you sure that a double negative is stronger than a positive? The examples that come to mind are similar to English ie less direct eg できないことはないけど=it is not that I can't do it but...[I can't].

comment Which particle is better に or から?
Thanks both of you. I can't really argue with Dainichi but I did notice while studying JLPT1 (ie without reference to any text) that the pattern using "ni" seemd to the norm and could not ever remember seeing the pattern with "kara" used in a question. Maybe it is common in practice but strictly speaking incorrect (and hence does not get used in text books)?

At first I wondered about context but see if you can find an example with a direct object marked by を. Your search mostly shows the object being modified (-から教えてもらったN)

comment Japanese word for Operation, in the sense of a project or task - slang
If you browse Space Alc you will see that most of the time it is used for military campaigns but not exclusively.
