comment What does '-' mean?
I'm voting to leave this question open as on-topic, because it appears to be about dictionary notation of a well-known and respected Japanese monolingual dictionary.

comment How to translate this sentence about ebooks and reading habits?
It would be very helpful to know how much of the Japanese you understand. Are you just guessing the meaning from looking up the individual words or do you understand some of the sentence structure?

comment Meaning of 「という訳でもないのだが」

comment How do you use “omou” in the past tense?
You use a contraction (omotte ita → omotteta) and an intermediate level conjunction at the end of the sentence. I think that without proper explanation this answer may confuse the OP.

comment How to use の particle and the で particle if I want to say “I bought the shoes in Tomoyo's shop”
