I'm a language-fanatic, an anime/manga fan, and an avid gamer.
Also, I'm super interested in programming languages and hope to someday make it my job.

I currently know/study:

  • Japanese (advanced level)
  • Korean (just started)
  • Hebrew (mother tongue)
  • English (judge for yourself)
  • PHP, HTML5 + CSS3, Java, Javascript, C#

I usually +1 everyone who comments/answers (unless I forget!) as I feel anyone who takes their time to answer a question deserves to be credited for it in some way.
Especially when they don't necessarily get paid for it.

@TsuyoshiIto I'm in no way trying to force anyone to answer both questions. I appreciate even the slightest hints. In my point of view, posting each question separately would cause a lot of mess and in-organization. As for the "free-rider" term, I don't believe I'm in the position to answer other's questions yet. That's why I'm still learning and asking questions rather than taking the risk of going wrong and possibly misleading other people. In a community like this, users should contribute what they know, rather than what they need to answer.

comment What are the usages of のだから?
Thank you. Finally an answer :) Isn't の a feminine emotional emphasis..? I don't think it's the case.. Maybe it's the nominalizing の, or the explanation one... In my "nihonshock.com" Japanese cheatsheet (it's a great one by the way), it says that のだから can't be used with reasons which are not self-evident to the listener.. I have no idea how that works in here but it might help... I know for sure that in no way that writer should or can assume the reader has some previous knowledge...

They're not really... I just thought it'd be easier than posting twice... if you say so though..

comment そのようにする + Recognizing a compound
Thank you. Your translation for the sentence makes sense when taking the context in mind. You said して in the middle is that past form of する, even though the past form of it is した... am I missing something?

comment A question about the usage of ため and spacing
Thank you!! 2 last things though; 1) I'm used to see ため followed by に or の. Why isn't it the case this time? Is it particle omission, or perhaps a usage I'm not aware of...? 2) Makes sense, except the ga/no conversion part... I tried looking for some info about it in google. I found several academic articles about it but couldn't understand much of it and how it relates to this situation... It's probably above my level but I'm a little curious! :D

comment A question about the usage of ため and spacing
@user1205935 - ため makes a lot more sense in a meaning of cause/reason. Are there any specific rules for it though? I couldn't find anything about it online... snailplane - That was it then! Thanks for pointing that out. guess I'll use WWWJDIC from now on I guess. Too bad, I liked the design and simplicity of jisho.org. One last thing I don't get is the spacing in (2)... Is it (怪物のうろつく危険)な(迷宮区画) or perhaps (怪物のうろつく)(危険な迷宮区画) etc etc.....? Sorry for being so picky, I just don't like 'guessing' the meaning!

@snailplane - Page 10. It's the prologue :) TsuyoshiIto - It's jisho.org... It's the same as well in WWWJDIC
