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.

comment What's the difference between 平和 and 和平?
I've always thought of 和平 in terms of the tongue-in-cheek comment "Peace broke out in XYZ today, as the two sides couldn't remember what they were fighting over", which has been spoofed repeatedly in comedic TheOnion/SNL news broadcasts.

comment Why is watermelon written in Hiragana, whereas melon is written in katakana?
The confusing bit of this question is the last sentence. What is the general rule that you believe this is an exception to?

comment A は/が difference
@dainichi: It's in there, I think. (might have been a paraphrase) "represent state change" refers to the context, though... not the specific verb. I was trying to get at that in the next sentence or two... you expanded somewhat more on it.
