comment Implicit topic switching
I can totally understand if this gets closed for being too subjective. That said, I often have composition questions like this, and I think they are probably of interest to many learners. I am curious how to properly formulate them for JLSE.

comment What does the word 「やり」mean?
While やがる sounds really rough in Japanese, I don't think it sounds quite as bad as "fucking"... Could you imagine DBZ characters dropping f-bombs every sentence in the English dub?

comment Can “が” ever mark the direct object?

comment what's difference between による and によって?
Obviously correct information, but I think the OP may have been asking about the difference when you're using both of them predicatively: 「天気によります。」 vs 「天気によってです。」, for example.

comment (美化語)なさい - sound
Are you sure you mean 美化語? 美化語 are lexicialized polite nouns like お名前、ご両親、お茶. I think your question can be more accurately stated by asking the difference between (連用形)+なさい and (お/ご)+(連用形)+なさい, if I understand correctly.

comment Why does ようになる become ようになりました (past tense)?
The 瞬間動詞/継続動詞 claims are a bit suspect I think, but I don't think this answer is egregiously wrong at least.

comment What do I actually call familiar or friendly language?
Mostly based on my non-native intuition, so take with a grain of salt. I figured you deserved an answer though.
