An intermediate-level learner with an unhealthy fascination with kanji.

Strong dislike for all "One true way to learn Japanese" pronouncements.

comment How important is gendered language in reality?
This 'question' meanders through several opinions, conjectures and sub-questions before eventually asking a subjective question. Some subjects here, if reformulated into a more concise format, would certainly be welcome as separate questions. Many of the more specific questions actually have been answered in other questions such as this question and its various duplicates, the feminine-speech and gender tags.

revised What does “一味一禪” mean?
I believe this to be a yoji-jukugo... revert if this is not the case.

comment How to read the Modulo operator in a formula
Would you mind splitting your questions into two separate questions? It makes them easier to find if someone is searching for the answers later, since searches are heavily affected by titles. (as a bonus, more rep!)

comment When you combine adjectives with the て-form does it imply a relationship between them?

comment The forward slash (English vs Japanese)
@Peter: On the contrary, context is the only way to know which question you're asking. Without context, the question is unanswerable since there simply isn't enough detail. The choice for a sentence, a list on a GUI checkbox, and a list on a sign have completely different answers.
