comment 人間 vs 人 to refer to an individual?
The question asked "why choose 人間 over 人" and you answered "limitation of the writer's vocabulary".

comment 人間 vs 人 to refer to an individual?
Limited vocabulary? Sorry, but that's nonsense. Do you think anyone (including learners and native speakers) would know 人間 and not 人? And 奴 is almost always used simply as an informal way of saying 人.

comment Japanese Dog Training Commands
Take a look here, starting at 基本的な服従訓練, halfway down the page. All the commands are in hiragana/katakana and you can probably guess the corresponding English command from a machine translation of the explanation.

comment どうしますか versus 何をしますか
See japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/8313/… and japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/15156/…. Both should answer your question.

comment Why are japanese comic storyboards called names (ネーム)?
Sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't even know whether this is supposed to be a question about English, or about Japanese.

comment What is the difference between 落とす and なくす?
I think what you typed in your "answer" would be much better placed in your question as "background research" (which is expected of any question). As it stands your question isn't a great question, because you don't tell us what you know and what you did to find an answer; and your "answer" isn't really a great answer either, because it doesn't really answer the question in any satisfactory way.

comment Website for dialect differences
I voted to migrate to meta, because in my understanding specific reference requests are on-topic there.

comment What does the word 「たたっ」 mean?
@l'électeur Why don't you link to your answer yourself (and maybe spare yourself the downvote). This way jogloran would know to include this information in this answer and any future answer he might post. Your answer would also be listed as first source for this explanation across several answers.

comment Kanji from an image
I thought you only asked for the stroke count. Translation requests without any effort shown are considered off-topic. Do you recognize any other part of the kanji?

comment Difference between 信用 and 信頼 and when to use which?
"So I thought it was a good idea to use Google translate" Be careful. Using Google Translate for translations to or from Japanese is almost never a good idea.

comment Use of と見える in this sentence
"does not work as grammar" Do you mean it's ungrammatical? If you mean that and assume that Japanese people say it, then it can't be a very good grammar...

comment What does the word 「やり」mean?
On possible way to translate it would be "he f***ing [verb in past tense]", like 俺のツナサンド食べやがった "he f***ing ate my tuna sandwich". (I like tuna sandwiches.)

comment Problems with some Japanese words
Straight translation requests are off-topic here. If what I wrote doesn't answer your question, your question might not be suitable for this site. You can try Google Translate, a Japanese forum which accepts translation requests, or a basic Japanese textbook.

comment 箱の中に何がありますか versus 箱の中に何がいますか when I don't know whether it is an animal or object
Is this a hypothetical question? Or do you frequently come across closed boxes that contain either an animal or an inanimate object?

comment Difference between「広げる」、「拡げる」
"Anyone who writes 拡げる is a greater stickler for detail than Sima Qian" There are many people who do use 拡げる. For example, BCCWJ has 広げ 4301 拡げ 339 ひろげ 718 展げ 11, so 7.3% of the kanji choice for ひろげ(る) falls on 拡. I don't think all these people do this out of attention to detail.

comment If 結婚 is written as 結{けっ}婚{こん} rather than 結{け}っ婚{こん}, why do we write 持{も}って rather than 持{もっ}て?
@FriendlyGhost 持てない could be 持てない【もてない】 or 持てない【もってない】.
