comment What does “=” equals sign mean in Japanese news headlines?
@KentaroTomono I understand your point. It looks likes different headings in one line is a better theory though. Thanks for your try!

comment What does “=” equals sign mean in Japanese news headlines?
@3to5businessdays I got your point. I read news through websites, like yahoo.co.jp. As I understand when article for print is shown online it gets this separator. Does equals sign inside body works similar? I can across it too. Or do you think this question deserves a separate thread on site?

comment How can I say “very little” in Japanese
Changed to your answer. I don't think there is objective correct answer here, so I guess the one that has most votes should be the best one, that's fair.

So, basically, I can use it as 'hi' and to say sorry and there is no hidden meaning and nuance there, right?

Makes perfect sense guys. I just didn't seem to encounter first type of ない in my studies much, so I decided to double check.

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?
