comment 形容詞 ending in /ei/ and /ii/
@EiríkrÚtlendi They are both listed on the linked website; unfortunately the author doesn't list any sources that I see, so the possibility remains that they are incorrect.

comment What's the difference between Ichidan/Godan and Ru/U verbs classification?
@jkerian Honestly, I'd never seen either name. In any case I'm not sure that "u-verbs" is a very good name either, since "る-verbs" also end in "u"... which is confusing.

comment Pronounciation of the hiragana け and か
The reason it's bad to learn in terms of English pronunciation is that many of the sounds in Japanese (incuding /a/ and /e/ that you're asking about) don't exist in English.

comment What should I expect to see in JLPT 5?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the structure of a test, not the Japanese language.

comment Is あれ? when used like “huh/what?” contracted from something?
Am I wrong in thinking that this あれ is not the same word as in これ・それ・あれ? I could be crazy, but it seems like the former is あれ【LH】 and the latter is あれ【HL】.
