I'm studying computational linguistics at Brigham Young University. I work with linguistic cognitive modelling and automated language testing using speech recognition.

I have been an avid studier of Japanese since 2003, and lived and worked as a missionary in the Chuugoku and Shikoku regions from 2007-2009. I passed the JLPT level 1 in 2009.

comment What's the difference between 一応 and とりあえず?
I always translated 一応 as "kind of".

comment Dative subjects
I would not translate it that way, and that is not how it is treated in the literature.

comment What's the difference between 成人 and 大人?
Easier to see when you add 未成人 to the mix; "not 成人" means a "minor" in legal terms

comment two levels for teiru and rare
Alright, I see that they are all typos. However, I have been told that double -rare- is legal (taberareteirareru, but never taberareteirareteiru). Does this mean that there is no emphatic version, either?

All of the hits contain the sequence. Did you search and see what I'm talking about?

@sawa- I've created a small corpus with all of the usage examples I've found for it. Are you saying that every one of them are typos? Can you give a good usage example for it? Search google for "られてられて" 93,600,000 results. Search for "てられてられ", 36 results.
