comment Can ガム mean “bubble gum”?
When you say that ガム encompasses bubble gums, do you mean that when there's a chewing gum and a bubble gum on the table "ガム持ってきて" would be ambiguous? Or would it non-ambiguous because ガム is codified to mean chewing gums?

@ssb, Hmm not too sure what you mean by that, because people (at least in my location) definitely differentiate bubble gums from chewing gums en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubble_gum

comment 餌食 vs 獲物​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Ic, Btw don't you think the explanation should have been "狩りや漁で得る物" instead of "狩りや漁で得た物"? Otherwise, how could a "得た物" also be "逃がした"?

comment I am looking for an online Japanese dictionary with audio pronunciations
Regarding "audio clips for the reading for all the entries"... Many many entries do not have the audio clip icon, and some have the icon but the clip is not available e.g. csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/…

comment Is "あら” a feminine expression? Can I use it as a guy?
@Tokyo Would あらら be a version of あら, or would it be a completely different word? japanese.stackexchange.com/a/1207/264

comment Is “あらら” (arara) a word or just a “vocal noise”?
weird, edict doesn't seem to have an entry for あらら. According to answers.yahoo.com/question/… あらら is a word "Adults say when they saw small children made small mistakes". Do you think that's accurate?
