comment How to say “Nobody is perfect” in Japanese
@ItachiUchiha Yeah that was the first translation I thought of. The other two sentences are more like what I would say to a friend to cheer them up :)

comment Explaining the phrase お世{せ}話{わ}になります and お世{せ}話{わ}になりました
@Tim "Thank for always being so good to A." for this you want Aがいつもお世話になっております(例:parent to teacher「息子がいつもお世話になっております」). So が not に.

comment What causes loan words to displace native words for existing concepts?
和製英語 is just the made up English sounding words which don't actually exist in English. Think バックミラー、アフターサービス、コンセント、サラリーマン、キャンピングカー、ベビーカー、フロントガラス etc. 外来語 is the best term for "foreign loan words" though not specifically from English.
