comment Particle に when related to state and how to recognize a verb as a state
I think this answer confuses a lot of concepts. (1) The 〜に in 行く・来る, etc. is specifically about directional movement, and can be replaced with 〜へ. 〜に住む has nothing to do with movement and can't be replaced with 〜へ. (2) 〜ている has multiple functions, one of which is the progressive, while another one is the resultative. In the case of 君を愛している it is not the progressive ("I am loving you"/"I am in the process of loving you"/君を愛しつつある), it really just is the resultative and means ("I love you"/"I am in love with you").

comment Is there a Japanese equivalent to the phrase, “when in Rome”?
@virmaior I think the duplicate functionality is only supposed to be used when the question is a duplicate, not when the answer to this question can be found in another answer.

comment What does 少々疲れます mean in this case?
It is sufficient. It is definitely the actions of the OP, the only ambiguity is if it was the last thing they said or multiple previous things they've said.

comment What does 少々疲れます mean in this case?
No, that's not what the first sentence means. It means something like "Would you happen to be playing a game of 'find the mistake'?" (excuse poor translation of 間違い探し).

comment 私 Origin / Etymology?
@woojoo666 Perhaps you could split out the first half of your question into a new question now that you have this answer for the second half here?

No idea without seeing the rest of the conversation, but probably the last reply.

Literally. That parenthetical was misleading, wasn't it. Will fix.

comment "社長に議長に田中氏を任命された” is ambiguous?
@Will It seems a little rude to say it's not worthy of any upvotes... (it's like saying "this is so bad I'd downvote it multiple times if I could", no?). I'd rather have native speakers feel comfortable responding on the site without feeling they need to write a detailed explanation each time.

comment "社長に議長に田中氏を任命された” is ambiguous?
Using によって is another way to clarify passive sentences that have both a "by ~" and an indirect object.

comment How do you say “How am I supposed to X”?
Is there a particular reason you're looking for another expression (i.e., do you have a specific situation in mind?) or just curiosity?
