comment What are the differences between 選ぶ, 選択, and 選定, if any?
1. I meant 選択 and 選定, I should have said that explicityle. (2) Why does it matter if 選定 is or isn't in my active vocabulary? Yes, it might be shocking to know that as someone who's not a We Native Speakers I find it useful to check a dictionary from time to time to make sure I have the nuances worked out right, but this is not a concession that I have no idea what I'm talking about. Let my answer stand on its own and don't try to judge it based on your perception of how good I am at Japanese. If there's something wrong in it, feel free to leave constructive comments telling me where.

Are you sure it's not 独特 listed as common?

comment the difference between てある and past forms?
@Ryan I am doing a little bit more research on this particle issue now, but I think that in that example the point is more about the fact that the page is the thing being acted on and not the person and not necessarily a classification of it as a "resultant state" usage of てある. I'll update my answer when I find more information though.

comment the difference between てある and past forms?
@Ryan I know I'm not an expert or a native, but this is from the article I linked: "「~てある」が準備を表すときには動詞の制限がなく、また対象が「が」格で表されるという特徴も備えていません。"

Or perhaps 帰ってきたあと? I know I have an unhealthy reliance on たら for a lot of things

@TokyoNagoya I wasn't totally sure about how natural that sounded but would you mind telling me where exactly it sounds bad? I guess 帰ってきてご飯を作った would be better, yeah?

comment Decomposition of kanji
I've done a fair bit of digging and I can find plenty of information, but nothing that specifically says how its composition is classified with respect to those traditional categories. I"m not sure if that means they are allowed to be in their own "2/3/4+ characters of the same kind" category or if they are wedged into something else

Technically 奻 does exist. Whether or not that means it fits into the same paradigm I do not know, unfortunately.

I'm PRETTY sure that 森 would be classified as 木 + 林, but not 100%. This has been your useless comment of the day.

You may want to try this if you're on windows. I can't type it natively but the dictionary tool is pretty intuitive. google.co.jp/intl/ja/ime
