comment How to say pork loin in Japanese
Did you do a search on 豚ロース レシピ? The top hits use ロース. Maybe similar somehow to your recipe? Also this might be a good terminology question for a butcher (loin vs. roast and what's the difference).

comment Question about mixed kana in おススメ
I see... I can understand the difference kanji vs. kana, but why so many kana version (おすすめ、オススメ、おススメ)? Is there any point to it, or is it just to keep things interesting?

comment Intuitive or logical way to know when to use a kanji spelling vs hiragana spelling?
@hippietrail No, because you probably would not have a bean on your foot. In the case of a blister, its probable you would say where it is.

comment What does the name Chacha (チャチャ) mean?
There is more info. about her real name on the Japanese wiki page 淀殿, as follows:[本名は 浅井 茶々(あざい ちゃちゃ)および浅井 菊子(あざい きくこ)。] I don't know the origin of 茶々, but I found a meaning here that is someone who interrupts others or butts in on conversations. Don't know if that is historically related to her name though.

comment Difference between the words for “feeling”
I'm a bit surprised nobody has chimed in on this with some more detailed information. Maybe a bounty is in order?

comment さまよう vs ぶらつく vs うろつく for the sense of “to wander”?
@ssb Thanks. Though I am a bit curious why 出歩く is included here. While it might be going out walking, I didn't think it implied there was no specific destination or direction, which I would read into wander or roam.

comment Are both spellings for ふけ (fuke) “dandruff” ateji? If not what's actually going on?

comment What is the meaning of りゃ in this phrase?
@TokyoNagoya I see the difference. But how do I know the meaning of なんて, as "What/How" as used in a question as above, or "What" used like 「なんて厄介なんだ!」 "What a headache!" (example from space ALC), where the meaning is more like "such" and not asking a question. (Maybe this should be a new question...)
