@miikaelf l'électeur is a native Japanese speaker, I don't think he has a source prepared.

comment Adverbs that can modify other adverbs / adverbials?
Regarding your parenthetical remark... why do you choose to interpret "adverb" to mean 副詞 instead of 連用修飾語? The word "adverb" in English is often used to mean any word that modifies a predicate, just like 連用修飾語.

comment こんにちは and こんばんは only once a day per person?
@saidy Absolutely not a native Japanese speaker. In fact, seems like pretty much a beginner to me.

comment What does 「ときている」 mean?
@l'électeur I think it's nice to mention the closest meaning in the dictionary for the same reason it's nice to have etymology (i.e., as a way to organize things in your head). At least it's useful to me as a learner.

comment Use of は particle when talking about doing things on a certain day
Would you say that having は is more natural in the case of negative predicates? e.g.,「明日は学校に行かない。」. (There is also 「明日学校には行かない。」, but I think that sounds contrastive to me... maybe 「明日は学校には行かない。」 is the best. Confused :-)

comment Is 「意味の分からなさ」 strange?
I'm pretty sure that that is right actually, since verbs in their potential forms work with -なさ (or so it seems to me, anyways), confirming that the necessary condition is stativeness.

comment What is 〜んだ and how is it used?
FWIW, 〜のだ is a bit hard to explain in totality due to all the different ways it can be used/interpreted. The 大辞林 entry is probably a reasonable place to start, though: kotobank.jp/word/%E3%81%AE%E3%81%A0-596938

comment “Something came up” in Japanese
(I'm aware I'm nitpicking, but...) wouldn't 「てしまいまして」 be more appropriate for most business situations?
