Took Japanese on and off through college (2 years of classwork total). Studied abroad at Kanazawa Institute of Technology for one summer. Anime and video game enthusiast. Always interested in polishing my skills. My greatest sources of practice these days are watching anime and playing Japan exclusive video games. Right now I have a goal to read a Japanese 17 x 11 book cover to cover.

comment Counters In Japanese
@istrasci "Is there a counter for something made up of smaller pieces of something else?" sounds pretty specific to me.

Unfortunately I don't remember the specific examples on hand, but I've definitely heard/seen んじゃないです before, so my question still stands.

So is this form only used in questions and exclamations? Also, is じゃない the only conjugation that んです can take, or are there others?

No. I did that intentionally to ensure that both examples maintain the same level of politeness.

comment What is the purpose of the suffix “さ” on adjectives?
The particle に is definitely my Achilles heel when it comes to particles. Thanks for catching me on that.

comment How should I intepret より in this sentence
I was going to put almost the exact same thing as my answer, but I didn't want to have a duplicate answer/comment.

comment Why is it 日本語がわかります instead of 日本語をわかります?
by that same definition, wouldn't 知る be of the same pattern? (e.g. you can't help knowing something, so it is a state rather than an action).

comment Why “to iu na no” instead of “de” or “no”?
A question that I have though, why is it 名? It sounds like it's saying "The name GIGN's dogs." Why isn't it something like と言う所の犬 or と言う警察の犬?

よぶ mean to literally call out to or invoke. The expression という means "to go by the name of".
