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!

  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)

comment Why are the particles “は” (ha⇒wa), “へ” (he⇒e), and “を” (wo⇒o) not spelled phonetically?
@hippietrail: Yours is not a dupe but it's highly related. Still, it's a good question, so I was thinking we could merge them maybe? I don't know if that's possible... :|

We might merge the two questions, is it possible? This is halfway between a duplicate and another question :D

comment How to choose between “よん” (yon) vs “し” (shi) for “四” (4) and “しち” (shichi) vs “なな” (nana) for “七” (7)?
Well, I've learned to use the other way, considering the material. But since you raised the "doubt", tomorrow (it's late here) I'll search further info on this matter.

Thanks @syockit :) What did you say in the last sentence? I'm not that fluent in Japanese yet :D I can read it but I can't understand the meaning :D

I disagree on the part regarding the counting: yon and nana are actually the common readings used, although it's an exception to the rule of "use on reading when the Kanji is alone"...

comment Is there a difference between ほんとう (hontō) and ほんとうに (hontō-ni) when used alone as interjection or question?
@Ignacio: My Japanese dictionary doesn't even mention「本当な」...

comment When to use ください (kudasai) or お願いします (onegaishimasu) in requests?
@Tsuyoshi Ito: Oh, no, you can. :P But the difference is in your reputation. If it's high enough, you can edit things without anyone "accepting" your edit. Of course, the edits can be "rolled back" by the original author or you can also edit an answer/question someone else previously edited.

@Tsuyoshi Ito: Corrected. :) (Since I don't have enough reputation, it must be reviewed before it is accepted, but because the correction is valid, I think it will be accepted.)

comment What are good sources for streaming Japanese language television?
This can be done a community wiki, since even if off topic, it's rather useful.
