My account seems to be hacked by some of the moderators. This profile also got changed by somebody a few times. I migrated to Quora, an awesome Q & A web site. I feel very comfortable there.

comment Do we use odd day pronunciations outside of calendar ranges?
I read よんじゅうよんにち. I understand the other way sounds natural but it should be due to the familiarity with counting days with the calender. I hardly imagine people actually using it and in fact I've never called days in such a way when they exceed 30.

comment Difference between だけで and でだけ?
We don't say このぬいぐるみを手に入ります。 it should be このぬいぐるみを手に入れます or このぬいぐるみは(~で)手に入ります and these have different meanings.

comment Is there any difference between 大の好物 and 大好物?
Do you think it depends on which word/phrase is more common? -- Ah, it might be. Is 大の親友 used equally as much as 大親友? -- I would say 大の親友 is used more than 大親友 but this is my opinion so you should hear how others think.

I posted my opinion. It's like 僕は姉がある. We don't say it. This is really funny.

comment Is there any difference between 大の好物 and 大好物?
I agree that 大の好物 sounds more emphasized than 大好物 but when I think of 大の親友 and 大親友, I feel that 大親友 has equal or more strong emphasis on the relationship compared to 大の親友. Interesting question.

comment Is being called an オタク derogatory?
@phoenixheart6 I think that オタク is still more broad than "nerd" -- It's covered in the answer starting with "It meant "nerd" except"

comment How to distinguish between the meanings of “quickly”, “soon” and “early” for 早く
If they don't have singificant differences, you may say 急いでいったほうがいいよ for - go quickly. For - go soon, すぐに行ったほうがいいよ would be used.

comment How to distinguish between the meanings of “quickly”, “soon” and “early” for 早く
I wonder if "it'd be better if you go quickly" has the same nuance to "it'd be better if you hurry" in English.

comment What's the difference between いつだって and いつでも?
You can say it. It may sound slightly awkward though depending on the situation. I would add at the end like 「いつだってうちに来てくださいね」 or 「いつだってうちに来てね」. Without , 「下さい」 is polite but feels a bit formal by itself. creates a friendly effect so it corresponds to だって.

comment What's the difference between 平行 and 並行?
When we say 平行線, it's more common to write 平行線 than 並行線. But by definition of 大辞泉 and 大辞林, they seem to have the same meaning as you point out. They are not clearly distinguished even by most Japanese in everyday life and they would choose 平行 over 並行 for its familiarity. In the philosophical and psychological term 「並行論」 (parallelism), it seems 平行 is not used in 大辞泉 and 大辞林 ( dic.yahoo.co.jp/… ) So there could be some differences but when I search 平行論 in Google there are some hits on it.
