comment Difference between 特別 and 特
Hahahaha Thanks. Yes after consulting a Japanese friend, she explained that 特別に is more specific/exceptional. Which, I guess, makes sense given the 別 kanji. 特別 is like this one as opposed to all the others. where as 特 is just an emphasis, but is not necessarily exclusive.

comment Relative clauses distinguishing whom/with which/that
Yeah you're right. I guess it just seems scary and ambiguous because my brain is doing so much processing of all the basics still - inferring the role on-the-fly seems impossible. But it just takes time :) Thanks again!

comment Relative clauses distinguishing whom/with which/that
Yes. My post was actually supposed to be asking about "with" and "in". That's what I meant by "linking words". Japanese completely drops the "で" when relativising, whereas english doesn't. Nevertheless, this is an awesome, awesome answer. So thanks!
