comment Help with the meaning of 大絶賛 in this sentence
@EISigh: It's not really sarcasm as it is practices in the west though. It's more like a word play with a bit of self depreciation rather than stating the opposite. I do think real sarcasm is not part of daily communication in Japan.

@josquius: No probs. Tried to define it as good as possible, but I'm not sure myself and it may vary among native speakers I guess.

comment How to say pork loin in Japanese
@非回答者: From what I understand pork loin refers to the uncut block, right? They don't sell that in supermarkets anyways. I've seen it been sold as ポークロイン in fancy shops.

comment What are the differences between すぐ、もうすぐ、すぐに?
@Chocolate: そこはわざとです。。並べて書くとなんとなくもうすぐの方が先な気がするけど、実際一方だけ言われた時にどれくらいの長さを想像するかはその時々で全然違う気がするんです‌​よね。「もうすぐ」って言うと、逆に「『今すぐ』には学力は上がり始めない」という意味があると思うので、そこが「すぐに」と一番明確に違うとこなのかなと。
