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?
Its not me. Anyway you might check this ふけ. Also Wikipedia.

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...)

comment Which is the proper way to say “I don't X”?
I found a couple of articles that talk about stressing the contrastive marker は. I've heard it this way but I can't say if that's the same as raised pitch, as I am not a native speaker. jlptbootcamp.com/2012/02/japanese-particles-the-contrastive-wa phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/reiko/Proceedings-WAFL5.pdf

comment Is there a background to the phrase 「熊出来てる」?
@syockit It was based on what I heard, くま. I should have checked further to get the correct meaning.

@snailboat I see. I was thinking there was some hidden meaning. But it was only my bad translation...

comment しゅみについて meaning
Do a google search for "japanese noun modifier" and you will find a number of resources. This point is pretty basic, but maybe you did not get that far yet. Also asking about 私はミステリーだアニメが好きです。 should be a separate question since its not related to the question you asked at first.
