comment Why do some loanword sounds get “abbreviated” when katakanized, but not others?
@istrasci I think that メンユー would usually be pronounced with a nasal ン, i.e. [meɴjuː], which is further than [menʲuː] from the English [menjuː]. This comment also applies to pine apple.

comment Memories and freezing ice
A single downvote on many answers has been a phenomenon that started only after I joined, maybe a year ago. I got a collected 15 upvotes for posting the same comment "Lately anyone's answer attracts a -1" on several downvoted answers... Don't take it too serious. If there's no constructive criticism, there's not much you can do.

comment Expressing 'if so'
@istrasci Hmm... I only know one name for と when it works like this grammatically. It's called "as"/supposition particle?
