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 [父]{ちち} vs. [乳]{ちち} — father vs. breast
Notice that, in English for example, you even have homophones with opposite meanings (eg, "to raise/raze a building"). There must be some in Japanese as well, but can't think of any.

comment How to say “also” or “too”
I hate when there is only one たり in the sentence… It's like saying "On the one hand" and never saying "On the other hand"…

comment What words are used for dolphin meat?
A restaurant in Sendai had dolphin last year. I remember my colleague being disappointed because the wholes had been sold out in less than a day, before he could get some. Whale, I've seen that on the menu of many izakayas in Sendai, small ones as well as chains. I also had crocodile (ワニ), but it's quite less common. More than dolphin, though.

comment Why is “Xy” pronounced as “Ki Shi” in Xylitol「キシリトール」?
It's obviously pronounced "Kishi" and not "Kishili". The "Li" part comes from "litol"…

comment Why do children call themselves by their name?
@Chris: yes, I think it's very common. For girls, I think you mostly use the child's name, or お嬢ちゃん (ojouchan).
