comment Usage of particles で and に with ~的
If it said あるの地域では男性がスカートをはく, では would be appropriate because 世界の地域 (parts of the world) is a noun.

comment Alternate の particle usage
So when would 運がいい/肌がきれい/勇気がある be used? And is it still correct to use が when the phrase modifies a noun?

comment Difference between 検索する and 探す
@yadokari Yea, that's where I got the kanji from, but I'm looking for a more in depth explanation here. A dictionary can only tell you that two words are synonyms, but it doesn't explain when to use one over the other.
