comment What is the difference between ために and -masu root verb+ に?
Any chance I could somehow convince you to not put spaces in your sentences like that? It makes them a little annoying to read. :-)

comment はは or おかあさん what should be used?
Not only is it OK, it is the "proper" humble way to refer to your mother when speaking to people outside of your family. Of course, people use other variants all the time for this, so I think it's more of a prescriptive rule than anything.

comment Which grammar rules are applied when でいい is conjugated to nouns?
It's known as the 連用形{れんようけい} in Japanese. I don't really know a good resource on it, but I've personally written about it here: What is the meaning and application of ren'youkei? Unfortunately, I don't include the 「で」 we are talking about here in that explanation, so it is probably not very useful.

Also related: i-adjectives used as na-adjectives: is there a difference? (e.g. 大きい versus 大きな)

comment Help with Kenjougo!
I was curious, does it actually make sense to say すみません in the middle of a 自己紹介 at all? It makes me feel like the person saying it is reading off a script where the dialogue of the person they're talking to is omitted...

comment Difference between お腹がすいた and お腹がすいている ― 「お腹がすいた」と「お腹がすいている」の違いは?
@l'électeur At least for you, since your English is great, for any single question (that was originally only in English) it probably makes more sense to just respond in English. Though, from the long term perspective, maybe having Japanese responses will help make it clear to others that it's okay to just respond in Japanese if your English is not good. Anyways, it's up to you entirely, of course. (Your thoughts are also welcome on the meta post!)

comment What's the difference between 大きいケーキ and 大きなケーキ?
This question is about the exact same thing, though I don't think it answers why your sentence was corrected: Adjectives functioning both as イ- and ナ-adjective

comment Why is 「で」 in 「三人のうちで一番…」 omissible but 「で」 in 「ここで待つ」 not?
@broccoliforest Ah, I probably should have not changed that without asking. (I had thought it was just a mistake on the part of the poster specifically restricting it to うち.)

「三人の中、一番背が高い人が私の父です。」みたいな文は私にとても自然に聞こえますが、間違っていますか?

comment Verb classification of honorific/humble verbs
すでにご存じかもしれませんが、質問は上記の動詞の使い方についてではなく、その使い方が分かって「正確に言うと普通の五段活用ではないですね」という思いを伝えようとし‌​ていると思っています。同じように連用形がいつもとは違う動詞が全部敬語であることが偶然であるはずがないという考えを念頭に置いて質問したでしょう。私は全く分かりません‌​が、とものさんはなぜこの動詞だけが連用形が「り」ではなく「い」だという点について何かお考えをお持ちでしょうか。
