comment Describing a woman with きれい vs. 美しい{うつくしい}?
"きれいです 228, 美しいです 47" doesn't really say anything about when it refers to a woman, though. "きれいな人" and "美しい人" have both roughly the same number of hits...

Rather than "abbreviation", I would call it "contraction".

@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.
