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 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)

comment Differences among -たら、なら、-んだったら、-えば, etc
@repecmps: if you say "パリへ行くと見える", you say "each time you go to Paris, you see it", and that's a very strong nuance not in たら/ば.

comment Differences among -たら、なら、-んだったら、-えば, etc
Yes. I always think it is important to emphasize the past tense in "行ったら" (which contains 行った). A行ったらB really implies that B happens only once A has been done/reached. 行けば is more a potential/general thing. Also, you could think of a campaign in a shop/bar, that says "学生であれば無料です" (Free for students). "学生だったら無料です" would be weird (to me), so it's not just a politeness issue I guess.

If it doesn't reopen, does it mean I win by default? :)

Are you sure we have the same wikipedia? It seems to confirm my answer… detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail/q1011168685 confirms it too.

@Lukman: changing the rules after you lost is cheating! :) And that could even be a perfectly valid sentence that may be found in a grammar book or a wikipedia page at the "particles" page!

comment Fun with particles - making a sentence that uses as many as 'em
Hum, how about a 100 pages long sentence? I suggest you divide the number of particules by the number of morae, so that you can somehow normalize results.

comment Significance of ところ in set phrases ところで and ところが
Purely unverified and just made up hypothesis: で is a location of action, so the overall meaning becomes "at this place" (so, you stay around the same topic) and "が" is a "but" and the overall meaning become "there is this place/thing but..." and you introduce some other facts.

comment When asking for holidays, should I be more polite than usual?
Isn't the extra level of politeness required when asking anything out of the ordinary? I'd say yes… And maybe even more when this is written down.
