comment correctness of い adjective + です
@sawa: no, "ちゃ" does not embed a "だ". We commonly say "んだちゃ" to say "そうですね". But the Tohoku dialects have a very loose grammar, so I think that deciding whether or not to put だ after い-adjectives is a matter of person, usage and situation.

comment correctness of い adjective + です
@sawa: I have no idea what "standard Tohoku-ben" may be, but as far as I know, in Miyagi, to say "うまいです" you would say "うんめ(っ)ちゃ" but not "うんめだちゃ". However, now that I think about it, "うんめだべな!" sounds pretty normal, yes :)

comment difference between ~の折に and ~の時に
Would you distinguish: "友達の結婚式をきっかけに田中さんに会った" and "友達の結婚式の折に田中さんに会った"?

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.
