comment Can katakana ワ be used in official name?
@naruto I see your point, but as I said earlier I think matching the original pronunciation is not the goal. If she spells "re-wa-do-ni-ya" to you and you need to write it down, which katakana would you use?

comment Can katakana ワ be used in official name?
@broccoliforest Thanks for you comment. That is what I wanted to confirm that there is no Slavic/Russian (or any other) "va" into ワ. By mistyping I mean if she is, for example, asked to spell here name and she says "re-wa-do-ni-ya" person will assume katakana ワ by default.

@broccoliforest I think you're trying to figure out the pronunciation to convert it to katakana. I guess it does not matter, I am more trying to figure out if katakanizing Levadnia as レワドニヤ does not have any problems. If pronunciation does not match original is fine.

@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.
