comment の in Verb+のじゃない: Nominalizer or Explanatory?
@snailboat Oh yeah, I guess that is genitive. That's embarrassing, haha.

comment How to place ありました with the 〜んです pattern, and the meaning of the resulting sentence
I'm not sure "Isn't there anything?" is a very fitting translation for 「なにか なかったんですか」. Perhaps something more like "Was something not [there]?" or "Was something missing?" would be more apt.

comment What's the difference between 参考【さんこう】 and 参照【さんしょう】?
@virmaior I understand that's what he's saying; though I don't entirely agree, that is not at all what I was saying. Rather, my point was that listing them individually as they are with no additional explanation: a) takes up a large amount of space, while conveying relatively little information, and b) comes across as slightly condescending.

comment What does 挨拶ナマ mean?
Welcome to Japanese.SE! Do you think you could add some context, such as the original sentence? That tends to help quite a bit with questions like this. Thanks!

comment What's the difference between 参考【さんこう】 and 参照【さんしょう】?
Thank you for the very detailed answer! This is exactly what I was looking for. Although, if you are just going to say "X is not natural" with no further explanation, the answer may be even better without listing them one by one.
