J'accepte les réponses rédigées en français, anglais et japonais.
I accept answers in English, Japanese and French.
日本語、フランス語や英語での答えを認めます。

  • I write in British English, so, if you correct my messages, please stick to it (e.g., colour/color, kerb/curb, flat/apartment, marmite/vegemite).
  • J'écris principalement en français de France (avec une orthographe non-simplifiée de préférence), mais il m'arrive d'y mélanger du français du Québec.
  • 主に標準語で書くんだけど、なかなか流暢に使える東北弁でも書くことがある。んだげんともほどんど通ずねぇがら、使わねごとにすっぺちゃ!

comment the different usages of つもり?
Hum, let's do as if I already knew the sentence… I have no idea about the story, but maybe it's a nuance like "I (forcibly) acknowledge that"?

comment the different usages of つもり?
Hum. I can't find many instances of your sentence. I do find "分かったつもり", which means "I had the intention to understand" (but in fact, I did not understand a thing), but this is the opposite of the translation you gave. (Translation by whom, if I may?)

comment How commonly are “あたし” or “[僕]{ぼく}” used?
Referring to oneself using one's own name is very feminine (if not childish too).

comment Meaning of …立てちゃいなよ
FWIW, I heard "食べなよ"、 "行きなよ" and things like that a lot, as a mild order or a suggestion, and only from a female friend. Could be a 口癖 too, I don't know.

comment Why is this 理由 【りゆう】 given the furigana わけ?
@DMG: you have to remember two things: 1) Japanese language is not fixed by rules, 2) writers write whatever they want, however they want. In French, "San Antonio" wrote a hundredth books with a lot a non-existing words, fake expressions, deliberate mistakes… And yet, many agree he's hell of a great writer. Choice of kanji/readings is part of the style of the writer…

comment What is ~げに suffix actually?
rintaun: Well, unless you give us a formal definition of adjective, you're not going to have an answer :) Also, I'm pretty sure you cannot use げに with な adjectives like 静か. So, I'd say "i-adj" and "state-related verbal nouns" (since one says 自慢する without need for "を"). Try to build sentences, and see which ones make sense. If you have a counter example, please share, I couldn't think of one.

comment What is ~げに suffix actually?
@sawa: that's why I had emphasized "you should've seen me". To convey the idea that this joy was visible. (I like my example to be extreme)
