comment If Vて+いる isn't a gerund, then what is it?
I've had a hard time distinguishing between when it's appropriate to use こと or の, but it's a bit off-topic for this question. Would you mind going into more detail?

revised Computer calculation: is there a better word than “オンザフライ” to say “on-the-fly”?
Poster probably intended to use bold, but since the markdown doesn't work well on Japanese, it came out as italics with stars.

comment What are the origins of 掘った芋いじるな (hotta imo ijiru na)?
I have an English coworker who lived in Osaka when she was young, and she remembers the "don't touch my mustache" expression as a way to say "you're welcome" in Japanese.

comment What is the difference between は and のは?
I thought の and こと did the same thing, but one normalizer is more formal/polite than the other. I don't think I've seen のこと (but I'm hardly an authoritative source).

Hot taimo ij[iru] na - very accented "What time is now?"

comment At work, when is it not ok to finish an email with どうぞよろしくお願いします?
This might be a silly question, but what do you put at the end of your email if you can't use 宜しくお願い?
