I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

My feature requests:

  1. Alert a moderator when an answer is improved after a post notice
  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)
  3. Give 10k users the ability to see the total count of flags they've handled

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

comment How is たら used as a particle?
If by ああ you mean "Ah!", then it's an interjection.

comment Is there a difference between 赤{あか} and 赤色{あかいろ}?
@DaveMG I understand. But since I could provide an explanation on that, I did (although I know it wasn't the info you actually wanted to know). :) I'm not sure I could give a good explanation on Japanese yet.

comment Is there a difference between 赤{あか} and 赤色{あかいろ}?
@DaveMG The genitive case (it's a grammatical case, like nominative, dative, etc.) usually indicates the "belonging" to someone (also other things, depending on the language); in English, for example, "Ivan's car", where <'s> indicates the belonging, and Ivan is in the genitive case. In Russian it's more explicit: the same sentence would be "Машина Ивана", where the original "Иван" (Ivan) turns into the genitive case "Ивана" (Ivan-a). I don't know if I explained it well. :D

@Flaw I was just trying to explain why it was probably down-voted, I can't answer that completely since I didn't. :D I think that we should encourage a "down-vote and comment" behavior. So that the OP or the answerer can improve their posts. After that the down-vote might even be removed, since it can be done after an edit.

@Flaw I didn't down-vote this question, but if you put your mouse over the "down-vote button", you'll see that its description says "This question does not show any research effort; it is bla bla". Note that it says "does not show" which means that maybe the OP did some research, but we can't know because there's nothing about it in the question.

comment Can 野郎{やろう} really have that many meanings?
Well, they don't have to be huge, just regrouped differently. This way it looks like a list and it's more difficult to go through it. Now that I know you're against it, I won't edit it, but I had to tell you. :)

@Hyperworm It is okay, yes. Actually it's what you're supposed to do with Community Wikis I think :D

I've heard the use described by @phirru as well. (I'm not a native speaker.)

Do you mind grouping the pieces into less paragraphs? That way even if it's long it'll be easier to read it. Many "one-line" or small paragraphs are more difficult to go through.

@Kdansky Ok, but your question is too broad like this. If you want you can answer your own question, including the ones you know and leaving the rest to be answered by someone else. I guess you can do it.
