comment So I am reading through a text and I am not sure if my translation of this sentence is correct
I'm talking about よ? specifically, not just よ in general.

You can use question marks for rising pitch even when it's not a question. I've seen よ? all the time for a sort of girly 'you really ought to know this' kind of intonation.

comment What does もんね mean?
You can use it mockingly for someone else, right? (at least as もんな that works in my head) - 'yeah, since he's gonna be rich like he says (like that'll happen)'

@Sam It's not -that- old, it was official until 1946.

comment How to understand this phrase?
I think it's 'the history of games'; but you couldn't tell easily without context. (I think I've read the manga this is from.)

I think you may have made a fundamental misunderstanding here. Can you explain your understanding of the difference between ある and あります?

Yeah, if that's なが, that's just straight-up hesitation/stuttering.

comment Is 動詞修飾副詞 a grammatical term?
Just looking at it suggests it means adverbs that modify verbs specifically rather than adverbs in general (since 'adverb' is often used as kind of a junk bin category); but I'm going on nothing other than the fact that that's what I would assume a word made of those parts means.

comment When is “私じゃ” used?
I don't think it's a duplicate; this is about topic marking with じゃ/では.

comment Does remembering meanings in two languages help
Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange! Technically, this question is off-topic, since we're more about how Japanese works than how to learn it. Still, as advice, you might actually be better off trying to remember meanings in -neither- language, and instead connecting the Japanese word directly with whatever it refers to.

comment ない vs 無い: Negative ある vs adjective?
It is both of those things. It was once just an adjective; it has now replaced the historical negative form of ある (あらず).
