comment Usage of すみません (sumimasen) versus ごめんなさい (gomen'nasai)
This answer seems to imply that you wouldn't use すみません when you've "done something inappropriate", which is just not right :/

comment Are there words which consist of katakana and hiragana letters together?
There's a whole bunch of slangy words which can often be seen written in a mix of katakana/hiragana. バレる、ググる、サボる etc., do these count? And yeah, what did you mean by しる?

comment Rosetta Stone uses は instead of わ
Also it should be おんな not おんあ. I'm hoping that's your error, not Rosetta Stone's!

Cool question! The one famous example I know that 芸 and 藝 existed as separate characters until the latter was simplified to the former.

comment What is the proper word for self-study?
Probably referring to this: 2 (独得)その人だけが会得していて、他の人には及ぶことができないこと。また、そのさま。 「自家―の曲乗のままで」〈漱石・自転車日記〉 (dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/jn2/158226/m0u) Yeah... not a common usage lol.

comment How the name Aimad is written in japanese?
It gets said every single time a name thread comes up: look for people with the name on wikipedia and check their Japanese pages. For example ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/… has Emad (عماد) as イマード. Searching google with "イマード" definitely brings up a lot of Emads and Imads...

comment Understanding もう少しゆっくり休む - “Take the day off more slowly”?
eow.alc.co.jp/… ゆっくり commonly comes with 休む. It doesn't have to be there but it emphasises "taking it easy", "being at rest".

comment How to write the name !xobile in Katakana?
@Kaizoku Hey, I appreciate the "best answer"! This was just a theory based on a little research so if someone comes up with a better answer please shift "best answer" to them instead :) Zhen Lin at least seems to disagree with me.

comment How do you say 'to die from…' in Japanese?
I'm assuming it was a figure of speech...人間はどんなに退屈でも死にはしませんから(笑) Luckily you can use the same figure of speech in Japanese.
