revised Differences between それとも ・または・もしくは・あるいは
Not to be anti-kanji or anything, but using the kana version will probably be more understandable to most people

comment Can 対 be used in Japanese where “Versus” would be used in English?
To kind of rephrase that question, what would the term be in academic writing to compare two competing ideas?

comment is “こっかい” a heteronym?
You'll find the most famous one is the distinction between 橋 and 箸. I think that's one that changes regionally, and I've been quizzed several times on how I say it.

comment What is the difference between 経験 and 体験?
I'm thinking right now of 職場体験. Aside from the fact that this is a set phrase, would you theoretically be able to switch in 職場経験 and have it mean roughly the same thing? Does that match your criteria for a single and new incident?

comment Making sense of 「出てったって待ってて」
I'm not sure "went out" would be the most accurate way to say this.. of course it depends on context, but I think we can probably intuit that the speaker is talking about something bigger than something like leaving a building

comment What is the origin of ポイ as in “タバコのポイ”?
To me ポイ is one of those words that just clearly matches the action it describes.. is there a way to find a first recorded use of it at least?

comment Is there a kanji for しか?
Yeah, more a potentially interesting "fyi" than anything. The more I look the more I think しか just doesn't have kanji... I wonder how it was written in manyougana?

comment Is there a kanji for しか?
I don't think しかし and しか are related etymologically, but on the off chance... 然し is the kanji there
