comment や in Kansai-ben when it is not だ
Somebody changed the title of the question to, "is や instead of だ Kansai-ben?". I'm changing it back because that is NOT what I asked. Yes, や in place of だ is Kansai-ben. I know that. I am asking about a usage of や that appears to be Kansai-ben and IS NOT a substitute for だ.

comment When do you use 下さい as opposed to ください
Sorry, I didn't see this question until now. It was Sazae-san: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b7/Sazae-san_rocks.jpg I don't know what the deal with this version of Sazae-san is; maybe it was intended to teach Japanese?

revised Strange use of であった in narrative
reverting tags because the copula is definitely the main issue here, and tense is incidental

comment Strange use of であった in narrative
Somebody edited this article to tag it with "tense", but I'm not sure why, since I think tense is only peripherally related to the question.

comment What went wrong when I asked for a 衡器{こうき}?
I don't know of a free dictionary that does a great job of it, I'm afraid. If you're good with Japanese, you can use dic.yahoo.co.jp, but all of the entries in its 英和 dictionary are completely in Japanese -- no helpful usage notes in English or anything.

comment The many ways to write {かっこいい}
Number of google hits is not a reliable metric for judging the general popularity of a word or phrase. It is possible to make a google search claim thousands or even millions of hits, but then you scroll down and see there are only three pages of results (30 or so hits).
