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 Pluralization in Japanese: usage of -たち and -ら
No kanji, but use of ら: see for example www-kb.is.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~koba/papers/JVM-IFlow-full.ps.gz page 15, first paragraph.

comment Pluralization in Japanese: usage of -たち and -ら
@ZhenLin: For my last claim, I have several years of experience doing academic research in Japan. But suddenly, you make me doubt… I've often read "ら", and I'm pretty sure the kanji was used as well.

comment Why can some words be written with or without okurigana? How do the uses differ?
@ZhenLin: I have not been taught vocab with two spellings, and there's no harm in consistently assuming one is correct. I'll remove "only", and your comment will smooth my sharp answer anyway.

comment What makes に基づいて instead of に応じて the correct choice for this question?
@istrasci: I believe the point in your example is that there is changes in the policy drive changes in the planning. You've got both origin (based on policy) and parallelism (evolution of policy causes evolution of planning). You don't have that in motoduku, where the referential is static, and thus doesn't change (afaiu).

comment What makes に基づいて instead of に応じて the correct choice for this question?
@istrasci: A common usage of に沿って is "川に沿って歩く": to walk along the river. There really is the "parallel" meaning in 沿う. English's "according" is cover too many interpretations. It makes sense in your sentence, but it is another meaning than 沿う that is retrospectively meant.

comment What makes に基づいて instead of に応じて the correct choice for this question?
@Chris: I just felt that "according to" was more natural in English, and as Cypher said, it is not the same one as "According to Jim, …" which is "ジムさんによると" or something like that.
