comment のに and のが. How do they differ in the context below?
(1)日本語では、topic markerの は、も、動作主の は も「主語」と呼ぶので、それに引きずられて subject という単語を使ってしまっただけですよ。(2)文の構成要素の関係が違うのだから、比較すること自体がナンセンスです。(3)「この本は軽くて簡単だ」と「この本は軽くて‌​白い」といったときに"軽くて"の意味が違うのは、(読むのが)が省略されているせいですよ。

comment のに and のが. How do they differ in the context below?
@TsuyosiIto (1)The word "subject" was not apropriate, the actor who feels 簡単だ is I. (2) 「象は鼻が長い」 は文法的解釈の曖昧さの例としては結構有名な例だから、いろいろな説明が見つかると思います。In this case B is "読むこと" , "読むこと" is not an attribute of "本", ( in contrust to "鼻" is an attribute of "象" ). (3) この本は簡単だ is a usual sentence , but この本は簡単だ is an abreviation of この本は(読むのが)簡単だ。

comment Adding っぷり to a word: Does this have some easily defined meaning?
@fifaltra コケる also means "to fail", which is derived from the meanings "to trip over" or "to fall down" as said by Tokyo Nagoya.

comment Are the same terms for husbands and wives used for same-sex relationships?
もっとも、古典では、夫も妻もどちらも「つま」なので、もともとあまり区別はなかったのかも...

comment Are the same terms for husbands and wives used for same-sex relationships?
@andrew-grimm 同性婚といっても大抵の場合はどちらかが男役、どちらかが女役を演じているわけで、男役の方をご主人、女役の方を奥さんと呼ぶのは自然なこと。そういう役割が固定されてい‌​ないケースならパートナーとか相方とか連れとかケースバイケース。

comment Understanding the の in ~ものの
hmm... my dictionary says 'の(一)[格助]... ④次に述べる事に関係するものを示すのに使う。(イ)同様な事を次にも述べる時、つなぎに使う。「桜花咲きなむ時ー[丹]{に}つつじのにほはむ時に」(万)'。(sub‌​ject marking usage is listed at (一)②(イ).)

comment What is the difference between 組, 団, 班, and 群?
I do not say that [群]{ぐん} is always a mathematical term. I just say if 群 is pronounced as ぐん, it may have different means from that of 群{むれ}. An other example is [群]{ぐん}の中心 -- this is a subset of a group consist of elements which are commutative with all elements in that group -- this is not same as [群]{むれ}の中心. [一群]{いちぐん}の羊 is a normal japanese, of course.

comment What is the difference between 組, 団, 班, and 群?
[群]{ぐん}を成す is a mathematical term. When a set satisfies the axioms of group (e.g. existance of inverse element, associativity rules etc.) , then we say that the set becomes a group [群]{ぐん}を成す. If one want to explain that many (usually living) things group together, one say [群]{むれ}を成す instead.
