comment What is the correct way of saying “see you”?
I'm more intrigued that you think "see you" (which all of them learn in their textbooks) is itself correct.

comment Translating “I'm yours”; does あなたのもの work?
@oldergod I don't mean to say it should be ... I mean to say that if you're going to stick a kanji on it which would be wrong that it would be better to err with 者 than 物. (Am I still wrong in the limited sense I intended?)

comment Translating “I'm yours”; does あなたのもの work?
You sure that's the right 漢字 to use there. Wouldn't [者]{もの} be preferable?

comment 独{ひと}り善{よ}がりの考え - what does it mean?
"Word meaning" is not really a motivation. I at least encounter several thousand Japanese words each day, but I don't bother asking each as a question here. What specifically motivates wanting to know what this word means, i.e., where you saw this word.

Based on the corpus, I would say the closest translation would be either solipsistic or narcissistic. I would also it doesn't look like a very common word...

comment 独{ひと}り善{よ}がりの考え - what does it mean?
I'm deleting my answer. It might be easier for someone to answer if you (a) explain what motivates the question [did you get an e-mail that has this word in it? are you reading a novel that contains it? are you just mining the dictionary for something you want to write yourself?] and (b) indicated the nuances you think a particular set of words has rather than just this one ... Separately, you can consult a corpus for Japanese if you want to see how it is used: kotonoha.gr.jp/shonagon

comment Using the Nelson index# as a means to order kanji? What do natives use?
@AHelps - English is more complicated than you're letting on there. Telephone book sort order and dictionary sort order ... e.g., en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_and_Mc_together / also the issue of spaces.
