comment What does it mean to write wasei-eigo and gairaigo in Romaji?
...Now that I think about it... Most of the situations I've seen were in some form of commercialism like an ad or music video

I'd think so, considering that romaji is just Japanese for the latin alphabet used in the European languages that most Gairaigo comes from.

comment How to express a verb acting upon another verb?
By act upon I meant that the verb makes a word it's object. Like in the sentence 'I threw the ball', 'threw' acted upon 'ball'. I'm sorry for the like/hate example (I should have remebered that you don't always have to use a verb with those). So does this apply with verbs as well? Like with 踊るのを試した, or 戦うことをやめて

@firtree thanks a lot, that pretty much answers it, really helpful on the nuances of those terms.

comment How important is gendered language in reality?
@firtree that's what I'm trying to inquire. Is it strange/wrong/rude/offensive for women to use masculine speech, or is it common and acceptable in casual speech?

comment How important is gendered language in reality?
I'm asking if femininity is sacrificed if 'masculine' parts of speech are used by women. This is said by almost (note, almost) everyone I hear speak about gendered language. However, when I hear japanese women talk (who aren't masculine in the least), I occasionally (often for some women), hear them use so called 'masculine' parts of speech. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think asking if something is masculine of feminine, is asking if somethings rude or polite. It's situational, sometimes riddled with opinion, but isn't invalid asking, although politeness is a bit more precise in japanese
