comment Is バッチリ a generally accepted term?
"The list would be near-endless, trust me." I started compiling such a list some time ago, precisely because it is a sore spot for myself, as it must be for all Japanese learners. My list isn't endless, yet (it has, by chance, exactly 100 entries), but looking at this list from time to time is always a good occasion for humility by serving as a reminder that Japanese is still a long way away.

comment レアチーズケーキ: Does 「レア」 originally come from “rare” or from “layer”?
@snailboat I don't know, but it is conceivable that the definition in 明鏡国語辞典 was added precisely to justify the "rare" in レアチーズケーキ... 大辞林 or 大辞泉 don't have this third definition, only the first two. In other words, レア in レアチーズケーキ may precede the sense 3 in 明鏡国語辞典 in which case 明鏡国語辞典 might not be the place to look for the etymology of レア.

How do you use "(vs)noun"? What are you saying is always "a (vs)noun"?

I think if you copy a comment verbatim you should give credit to the original poster and make this answer community wiki.
