I thought it mightn't fit. OK, close it so.

comment What is the counter used for doors?
Ah, I misread it. I have no idea how accurate that site is, I only found it today. They also say that 夜着 is やぎ. They have a lot of counters though. (The revolving doors was just a joke).

That site seems to fall back on 一本 for a few things which aren't cylindrical (e.g. 大仏). Maybe they were talking about revolving doors?

comment When to use だ before と思います。
You don't use だ with any i-adjectives (難しい, 高い, さびしい etc).

comment Is there a general counter word for objects that you can fallback on if you're not sure which one to use?
I use 個 for intangible things too, but I don't know if it's correct. 三個のアイディアがあった. Maybe it does sound strange. 三つのアイディアがあった?
