comment semantic difference between two keigo verbal forms : に なる(ni naru) and なさる(nasaru)?
Uhm... This looks more like a question for Japanese SE. You're asking more about grammar/usage than something linguistics related. I will migrate it to their site.

comment Are there differences between 自動車{じどうしゃ} and 車?
@Earthling True, but these weren't listed as synonyms (which are usually marked as such), just as meanings.

comment Are there differences between 自動車{じどうしゃ} and 車?
@oldergod At first I thought it was the same (and register-wise, it probably is similar to that), but dictionaries sometimes give both of those terms also for just 車.

comment Expressing “I like to <do something>”
Yes of course, I asked about the statement "I like", not "I'd like". :) Very clear explanation. Then for the tea one, it should be "お茶を飲むのが好きです", right?

comment What's the difference between Ichidan/Godan and Ru/U verbs classification?
Ahah ok, if you find it, please ping me here. By the way, in your last paragraph, there is a mistake: "One advantage of the this distinction".

comment What's the difference between Ichidan/Godan and Ru/U verbs classification?
@nkjt Even then my question is pointing in a different direction. That question didn't answer mine (otherwise I wouldn't have asked in the first place). :P

comment The meanings of 写真{しゃしん}
I see, I guess my dictionary is a bit outdated? :D @Chocolate If you could elaborate that as an answer, I'd accept it. :)

On Meta there is a question about resources with a rather good section filled with dictionaries.

Uhm, is there a reason for this downvote? I don't see any mistakes.

comment learning order for kana?
That's why I didn't vote to close or flagged, but they are very close. And yes, they are tied: letters or symbols are taught in alphabetical order. That's why in school you didn't start from Z going backwards, but rather starting from A, B, C, etc.

Related: What is the equivalent of “alphabetical order” in Japanese? I'm not sure it's a duplicate...

comment Interpreting a specific Japanese sentence
@dotnetN00b The Genitive case expresses different purposes depending on the language. I think that the most common/spread one is the "property", as in "John's car". I think it's also the case of this sentence.

comment Why is the Hepburn system of romanization generally used over the Nihon-shiki system?
+1 :) I was wondering... Why would the Nihon-shiki be preferable? I see as much more "precise" the other one, actually...

@MarkHosang Some time has passed, but you can cancel the down-vote if the poster edits the answer. :)

I took the liberty of slightly editing your body to make it appear "shorter" although the content is the same. :)

comment Splitting Kanji and okurigana at the end of the line
Thank you, especially for the link, I didn't know of such a thing. I'll investigate more into that when I have some time... :D
