comment Etymology of モブ
Good point, although my personal impression was that 雑魚 corresponded more to the English term "trash" or "trash mob" in MMO usage.

comment Which readings are used for 漢文?
Great answer, especially the video. Quick question about うちは三人兄弟だ. Does this mean the speaker has 3 siblings (implying the family has 4 children total) or that the family has 3 children total?

comment what's the difference between とか and や?
I'd say that the biggest difference is that you can use とか in a list of only one item, but や needs to be used in a list of two or more items.

comment Translation to Japanese: “The test will determine which university I will go to.”
Sorry, I'm not very familiar with formal terminology. From what I understand, が is supposed to mark a "grammatical subject" and in the two sentences there is その試験が and どの大学に行くかが. Are you saying one of these is a grammatical subject and the other isn't?

comment Translation to Japanese: “The test will determine which university I will go to.”
Could you clarify what you mean by "A sentence with an abstract noun as a subject sounds unnatural."? Your two examples use その試験 and どの大学に行くか as the two subjects and you claim that the first one is abstract and sounds unnatural. I agree that the first sentence sounds more unnatural, but I don't understand the reasoning.

comment How were hiragana/katakana influenced by syllabary writing systems?
For the Chinese history aspect, Old Chinese was a monosyllabic language so it made sense to associate one graph = one word = one syllable. This influenced the Japanese syllabaries, which were based off of Chinese characters
