comment What particle should I use with “motomeru”?
I edited the question to better reflect what I think you are trying to ask. 'Conjugation' is about changing verbs (motomeru, motomenai, motomete, etc). It's quite a big change from the original though so say if you don't like it and I'll reverse it.

comment How to talk about style
@PaulCunningham 流行 is a fashion as in a craze or fad (like your dictionary link says). Something that's "in" fashion. It's not limited to clothes. 世間に広く行われ、用いられること。服装・言葉・思想など、ある様式や風俗が一時的にもてはやされ、世間に広まること。dictionary.goo.ne.jp/jn/231934/meaning/m1u/%E6%B5%81%E8%A1%8C

comment How to say IS / ISIS / ISIL / Daesh?
gohoo.org/15021303 you might find this interesting which shows what ive noticed myself too about media (NHK especially) changing how they call the group. not really about daily convo though. イスラム[国]{こく} is what i normally hear in convo but that might change in near future if more media shifts to different names

comment Mixture of romaji and hiragana in NHK “Meet and Speak”
I've seen this show on NHK World a few times and @user3169 is right. They only use hiragana for the hiragana the viewer is meant to have learned from the show at that time - your 'alternate explanation' ^^

comment Which is better? 私は買いましょうか? or 私が買いましょうか?
@istrasci Thanks, I tried to arrange it a bit more clearly. I'm trying to make it clear which sense of "Shall I buy it?" it is that "私が買いましょうか?" would be a valid phrasing for.
