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 Is 日語 a good two-kanji stand-in for 日本語 (“Japanese language”)?
As far as correctness is concerned, you'll have to ask native speakers. As far as taste and feelings are concerned, I do not like "日語" very much. Even though some other countries use similar characters, do they use the word "国語" too? If not, then it implies it's written in Japanese and that it describes the Japanese language. Still, I think that the "邦" variations are nice, and, well, it's also about learning!

comment “Statistically speaking … ”
I find the "言えば" a little bit too much in casual conversation. In a similar fashion, you can also say "確率的に" without fear.

comment can we use ねー as a question?
A related note, not worth a full answer: turning ない into ねぇ is also dialectical: in the Tôhoku area, the sound "あい" is often rendered "えぇ". For example, "行かないか?" would become "行がねぇが?". However, I wouldn't suggest you try that unless you already have a strong Tôhoku intonation…

comment When should one add さん at the end of a name?
I confirm this rule. If you answer the phone at your job, and someone asks for your colleague Mr. Yamada, you would say something like "あぁ,すみません、今、山田が席を外してるようですが" to say that Yamada's not here right now.

comment What exactly is the difference between <verb>-てしまう and <verb>- [切]{き}る?
Yes, but since his question is about "てしまう", it is very likely that he meant "てきる" instead of "てくる", to express completion of a task. Adding a paragraph on this would make your answer more relevant, I guess. P!
