comment 百年 - ヒャクネン or モモトセ
I'm interested in what you said about premodern Japanese. Around when did that stop being acceptable? Do you have any references for more information?

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.
