comment Why do road signs have 止まれ, not 止まる, 止める or 止めて?
Hi. Interesting example about the taxi driver. I actually thought in English directions are transitive, since driver has control over the car. But yeah in Japanese it's intransitive. Never though about it.

comment Function of の particle in the title 「進撃の巨人」
This "Attack's titan" is troubling me too. I vote this answer up since sometimes の is used in this weird reverse manner, not like in English. I don't know why. Sometimes first thing is like an adjective, if a teacher is female it's 女性の先生 "female's teacher" = "female teacher" = "teacher who is a female". So could it be "Advancing/attacking titan(s)"?

Makes sense. Will 食べる turn in 食べるし or 食べし then?
