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

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

@Teno: That's not really the same, since 16 and 26 use にち, unlike 14 and 24... it's not an extension of a pattern seen earlier.

comment Pronunciation of 日 in compound words
On a side note, all days ending in '4' are also irregular, and use ~よっか. So the 14th is じゅうよっか, the 24th is にじゅうよっか, even though all the other days >10 switch over to ~にち.

comment When is it appropriate to use お宅 to refer to the second-person?
I'm not 100% sure, but I think those are two different "otaku". オタク is a noun that can usually be translated as "fanboy". お宅 is a formal reference to a "home", which can be used as a pronoun. (@Flaw: I'm aware that it can be used as a word for 'you', but I'm not sure enough of the boundaries of acceptability to offer an answer)
