comment How can you input and display a radical in a computer text document?
I once had a question about LaTeX and Japanese, I wrote it on Latex SE... So @Tsuyoshi is right, this question is off topic, because it doesn't deal with Language itself but with computers input. :) Voting to close as well...

comment What is the equivalent of “alphabetical order” in Japanese?
I think they are called "Kana tables", at least that's the name I've seen, both on my grammar, and if I change the computer input from mine to Hiragana, I get a new option called "Type using Kana table". :)

comment Is there an objective source of the origins of kanji?
@repecmps no he's asking, for example, where the Kanji for mountain "山" came from... I knew for example it came from the drawing of three mountains... But he was asking for an objective source.

comment What to say after someone sneezes
@Derek Thanks for the comments. I guess the best way to take is to avoid saying something. Or if we really wanna say something, we might use the "bless you" expression; but a language is not simply words and grammar, it's also, and maybe above all, culture. If we use a language without taking into account its symbiosis with the culture, we are ignoring an important part of the language itself. That's my opinion. :D

comment If I wanted to sound more like a Samurai, what words and phrases should I learn?
We can make this a community wiki, so everyone can answer and the question is not "subjective" anymore.

comment What's the standard for making plurals of Japanese words in English?
Yeah, this is a question about English. You might post it on the English SE but before you do it, check if there are duplicates of your question. :D

comment What is the significance of [の] (no)?
@Madcowe @Lukman "Watashi" means "I", but "watashi no" means "my", be careful. "Ore wa" means "I" as well, but it's more rude (especially in certain contexts and very masculine-sounding).
