I graduated from Ohio University in 2011 with a B.A. in Linguistics with a minor in Japanese. Nearly half of my time enrolled at Ohio was spent studying at Chubu University near Nagoya, Japan. I plan eventually to go to graduate school for foreign language education, to become certified to teach Japanese at the secondary level.

In the mean time, however, I program (primarily in PHP and SQL). I also recently began working as a freelance Japanese-to-English translator, though I've translated anime and manga as a hobby in the past.

comment How to understand 抄 in Japanese?
@Ignacio Actually, the first act of 「秒速5センチメートル」 is 「桜花抄」 - the modern Japanese kanji that conform to the ones he used.

comment What is あーんしちゃろうか?
This makes a lot of sense, given that して+しまう+volitional would be してしまおう→しちゃおう not しちゃろう.

comment How does the intonation of ありがとう vary between dialects?
Thank you! This is exactly what I was trying to remember... and apparently, I say ありがとう like I'm from Nagoya (which isn't surprising, since I lived there for a year and a half...)

comment Why is it that the っけ suffix can only be attached to a question-sentence
@Pacerier: No, it falls on っけ (in every example I can think of off the top of my head).

comment Is the only time 得る read as うる when it's a suffix?
@Kafka I don't understand how RYK can be as you described, since the root for the た・て forms is not the same as the ます root in most verbs (e.g. 書く 書いて 書きます).
