comment What's a nice way to say “fingers crossed”?
"fingers crossed" suggests hoping for a streak of good luck. 頑張って is usually said to someone else as way of encouragement to do his/her best, which doesn't have anything to do with luck. But I agree that in a free translation "fingers crossed!" could be translated as "頑張ってね".

comment How to tell if a word is Sino-Japanese or Yamato
Much better, but I still don't understand. "How could I tell whether 先生 was Sino-Japanese or Yamato?" has a naive answer: 先生 is read with the 音読み of 先 and 生, so (by definition) it's 漢語 (和製 or otherwise). Are you trying to ask how to guess whether a (sequence) of syllables is more likely to be 音読み or 訓読み?

Any word? Are you trying to ask about 和製漢語? Or about 和語 words written with more than one 漢字? Could you give some examples, please?
