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 Is there a general rule for deriving xasu→xaseru intransitives such as 死なせる from 死なす?
Just replace xaseru with xasu. If it's an itidan, use sasu instead of saseru.

comment When going somewhere, is there any difference between e (へ) and ni (に)?
I'm pretty sure not... But if you can find a grammar somewhere that says that then post it :)

comment What is the difference between 〜となる and 〜になる?
@makdad- that's used for assumption. Say in a math text book when a problem is being set up or when you are role playing. Kind of similar to "let x be the complex conjugate of...", "let's say that..." or "assume...".
