comment Adjectives functioning both as イ- and ナ-adjective
I tend to use the な version when i want to emphasize something. I feel like it adds a little more feeling to what you are saying.

comment What words are used for dolphin meat?
@phoenixheart6 In Japanese fish often have different names depending on their maturity/size. Going off that it wouldn't surprise me if whale/dolphin did too.

comment How to distinguish between passive and potential forms of the verb?
Maybe worth noting that in conversation the potential form for る verbs is mostly shortened from 食べられる to 食べれる。

comment Meaning of 「そればかりか、〜Vーるというようなことさえ、始めはしない。」
Could this use of ばかりか be a more formal version of ばかりでなく ? Meaning "not only this, but also.."

comment Where does the phrase 「ノリが悪い」 come from and what is the meaning?
Apparently the origin is from Noh theatre, where ノリ is the term used for the counting of the rhythm. If you had good rhythm ノリが良い, if you didn't ノリが悪い. Which makes sense, as it basically means you don't fit in with the group, or your our of rhythm with the group.

comment Use of unit abbreviations in Japanese
I don't think 30度 exclusively referes to Celsius. Obviously it's most commonly used in that regard, but it could also be used to refere to a temperature in Degrees Centigrade, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin. All in the context of the situation I guess.

comment Use of unit abbreviations in Japanese
In what context? On exams and technical documents I've always seen them written as their abbreviated units (mm/cm, etc). While in novels (a non technical context) it would probably be more common to see them written in katakana.

comment What does 「のいう」 mean in this sentence?
I think it may used to generalize slightly, by saying "It's like Drucker put it...". Not necessarily restricting itself to that exact quote, but his ideology in general relating to that quote.
