comment Help translating this paragraph: doubts about 「への」and「と共に」forms, and structure of a sentence beggining with 「これ」?

comment Usage of 整{ととの}える for asking for a trim when getting a hair cut
I've had hair people repeat back to me "普通のカット" when I have tried to explain, and it seems to get the point across pretty well, but I'm not sure about the nuance...

comment Could someone please clarify if I'm translating these two sentences correctly?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is several questions combined into one. It might be more beneficial and clearer if you separate these into individual, more focused questions about the particular parts that give you trouble.

comment Difference between 「なるベく」 and 「なるべき」
Do you have an example sentence or anything? I don't think I've seen these used in similar ways, but I could be wrong.

comment Japanese: “osowarata”?
@snailboat For the books it must be that! I can't find anything else about it, either, and I agree that in the recording it's probably just the singer saying the っ in some unusual way

comment Japanese: “osowarata”?

comment Difference in usage between クラス and 学級
In elementary schools the concept of a class is similar. We don't have ~組, of course, and in junior high and above the system changes, but elementary schools will have a single group of kids being taught by one teacher. The class won't change for the year. So instead of saying 3年2組 we'd just say Mrs. Johnson's 3rd grade class, using the name of the teacher to identify which class.

comment How to negate “べき”? (ie. “should not”)
@Tim that is certainly how the Makino grammar dictionary treats it. I've never personally seen it in use anywhere, though, so I didn't include it. Maybe it should be in there...

comment “トサカに くる” meaning
@非回答者 do you have any other issues with this answer except for (what I assume) the obscurity of the expressions themselves? Does something seem wrong to you?

comment “トサカに くる” meaning
@非回答者 No, this answer is based entirely on stuff I found elsewhere. I'm not making any claims here about how common any of these are.

These are two questions! It might be more useful if you split this into two separate questions.

comment What is the exact meaning of “kaizen”?
I made a little addition to point out that this is a little more than a pure translation. It might not be enough to appease the other voters, but feel free to change it if you like!
