comment How can you divide verbs into conjugation groups easily?
@rhyaeris indeed -- my mistake because i never actually use those categories (prior comment deleted - i never understood why they felt a need to re-invent 一段 vs. 五段 as "group ii" and "group i")

@Pleiades understood, but it's important at least in part because comments cannot be downvoted and in this case your comment was not correct (something I've been guilty of myself)

comment Why should we say 応えられなくなってきて and not 応えられなくてきて?
While there is a [応]{こた}える, you probably mean [答]{こた}える which is much more common.... (the meanings are non-identical).

comment Is 方 read かた or ほう here?
Yes, the main lesson is -- don't trust Google translate for Japanese translation or rather "Googleは日本の翻訳に翻訳信用していません" to prove my point.

comment What is the difference between 仏 and 釈迦?
The answer to this question appears to greatly depend on which sect of Buddhism one subscribes to (timeisbunny.hatenablog.com/entry/2015/03/27/213750). Do you want an answer about common usage or technical usage?

comment How has Japanese kanji and kana usage changed since 1945
