Do you have a more specific question you might be able to ask about it?

comment 知る vs わかる and when to use が and を in “how to” questions
@MorningCoffee It will probably take a long time to get a solid understanding of the difference, so for now just try to remember that 分かる uses が and 知る uses を!

comment What old Japanese texts can be used in the same fashion as the latin “Lorem Ipsum”?
I think the whole point of lipsum text is that it looks similar to English without actually being English. I don't know if it would be possible to get the same effect with Japanese since no other languages use the same script, and garbled or ancient Japanese can be visually distracting..

I found this, but it doesn't look anything like "real" Japanese... generator.lorem-ipsum.info/_japanese

comment The meaning of く
I tried to keep the original answer really simple since the question was so basic, but I've made some edits to address the ambiguity that was present. Please feel free to suggest changes for clarity or edit them in yourself.

comment The meaning of く
Interestingly enough 新しく has its own entry in edict as an adverb. I wonder where that came from.

comment The meaning of く
If it modifies a verb then isn't that the definition of an adverb? And I'm seriously asking this because if I'm wrong I'd like to know. Doesn't the 連用形 often function as an adverb?

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.
