comment What's the difference between 浮かぶ and 浮く?
@Jon: Could you elaborate? I'm not quite sure I follow, since in this case it seems "simply" applies? Or do you mean generally about Japanese?

comment What's the difference between 浮かぶ and 浮く?
@Jon: It seems to me like 浮く is simply an antonym of 沈む, wouldn't you agree?

comment The differences between いきなり, [急]{きゅう}に and [突然]{とつぜん}
Of course I cannot setup a rule that will explain every single situation, however, something that aids understanding in the majority of cases can be setup. Your answer simply boils down to "Oral vs Written" which I, judging from what little I've seen, can't believe.

comment The differences between いきなり, [急]{きゅう}に and [突然]{とつぜん}
From reading you answer, I feel my question is still left unanswered. Furthermore, I have heard 突然 used in casual situations, which inclines me to believe the answer is not as simple as you attempt to portray it.

comment なく vs. なくて and stem form vs. てform as conjunctions
@sawa: It seems to me like you're talking about intent, not volition.

comment 換える, 替える, 代える, 変える and their intransitive equivalents
I would consider a ballpoint pen refill and an oil change to be somewhat equivalent actions. Could you elaborate on why one uses 替 and the other 換?

Do you think maybe we should add 器具 for archival?
