comment Are verbs transformed into the ず-form used like adverbs?
Ouch, snailboat was faster. Just like she said, but you can also look at it like this: ず→なくて and ず(に)→ないで

It's not incorrect, because -zu actually is a ren'youkei, however I do see your point. In case like the one you're thinking about, you can just assume ni isn't expressed explicitly, much like it happens with tame (ni). In other cases like the one in your example, its nature of ren'youkei should be more obvious.

First of all, as I said, some people say it's normal. Second answer is 普通だと思います。 どういたしまして。とか、気にしないでいいよ。とかの意味じゃないでしょうか??and the one who laughs actually says 江戸っ子ですか~(笑)まぁ、普通の返しですよね (the uncut version). However, I'm not questioning how often you hear it in real life, I'm saying you hear it pretty often. And that's true if you watch television. Should we avoid learning 拙者 because you'll hear it just in television? And if I watch a 時代劇 on tv? I won't know what they're saying half of the time! (I know, Chokosan, it wasn't you)

comment How to say farewell in 敬語?
I didn't mean you can't use soredewa in a work setting (I've heard it with my ears, thanks). It's just that most of what was already been told was (almost) just for working settings (like osaki ni and otsukaresama), while a very basic greetings like soredewa (which NO ONE has said) had been left out. ...and now readers will think of soredewa as uncorrect, because of this downvotes. You should try to suggest to edit, sometimes.

Then they should watch more drama and television. Even if it's not what you can hear in everyday conversation, if you hear it everyday on tv you should know it and consider it common. How could I have learnt it if it wasn't common? (Btw, please, never seen naruto, I'm 33 yrs old).

Downvote without comments shouldn't be permitted. Next time I can just avoid answer, even if what I have to say (right or wrong) may bring something to the discussion.
