comment Using both と and を with the verb 言う?
Hmm. Thanks for the response. I do agree with the omission theory being pretty unsatisfactory, but I still think this is a different sort of construction than the usual ◯◯を△△と言う one. Another point is that 「どこに住んでるの?」と「い」を言わなかったり doesn't feel scrambled to me (and the opposite order is almost unintelligable), while 「パパ」とお父さんを言う。 does sound scrambled (and the opposite order sounds like the natural order).

Is it really using the usual ◯◯を△△と言う construction? I thought it'd be more something like と(言って) getting omitted. Does something like 「どこに住んでるの?」と「い」を落としたり work? It's weird that the scope of the と is outside the ない if it's the construction you mentioned.

comment Use of に in 「私には本物の若殿様がわかります」
This is my basic understanding as well. You'd need to use 私は若殿様の正体がわかります or a similar rephrase if you wanted 私は. That said, I haven't figured out how to really explain this well... it's a confusing area.

comment Are ミツバチ and イルカ more frequently written in katakana?
@Unknown The interesting part is the other way around. I don't think I've ever seen ミツバチ written in hiragana, while うさぎ is written in hiragana all the time for example. I guess it might just come down to the former being a less common animal to refer to in non-technical conversation...

What're some of the other entries in the list? Also, is this list from somewhere that looks like it has been professional edited, or just some random blog post or something?
