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

comment What does it mean to write wasei-eigo and gairaigo in Romaji?
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

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

comment Why does 赤 have a negative connotation?
I suppose that does allude to the meaning of most of them, except for 赤口, I don't know how they got Day of Evil out of that.

comment Are all kanji compounds considered words?
+1 for the in depth description and incredible sense of nuance on the term 'word', it's use, and the flexibility of words and word coinage!

comment Colour connotations in Japanese language?
@KohsukeKawaguchi In an image one could use a colour to represent something, but the use of the very same colour in language can have a different meaning. I already know what colours mean in Japanese arts in a visual sense, but I don't know what sort of connotation is assigned to colours when written or spoken, if such a thing exists in Japanese like it does in English.

@user18597 It can be answered if someone points out that Japanese does or does not have connotation of colour in the language and hopefully an example. That would be satisfactory.

comment How are し, ち, and じ pronounced differently than in English?
@Dono I checked Wikipedia for IPA, and unless I'm missing something, I need more technical instructions of pronunciation, like 'tap the roof of your mouth with your tongue lightly'.

comment What are the pronunciation differences between speaking and singing Japanese?
@snailplane No, at first I was quite confused but in the end I think you made my question simpler, but probably more effective and less confusing. I will try to get better on the front of format and description, Thanks.

@yadokari I mean the Japanese sh and ch sound in generally, but I see where you're coming from. I suppose I'll edit in an example.
