comment In customer settings, is it ok to ask for keigo to be repeated in more “normal” Japanese?
sawa: IMO タメ語でお願いします would sound fine in that situation? To me it just means speech that is used by タメ, and doesn't imply the other person has same age/experience etc.

You also frequently hear タメ語でいいですか etc. when somebody wants to go タメ語 from 敬語

@sawa: タメ means "equal" which is why you say "タメだね" when you find out ppl have same age as you. It's not reserved for juniors talking to seniors in non 敬語. It just means speech used by タメs.

comment How different is 冷やかす from 冷やす? And 散らかす from 散らす?
@Lukman: Yep, 聞かす has the same nuance. E.g. 音楽を聞かす (have he/she listen to music). Not sure about your 2nd question.

comment Looking for Japanese common speech phrases list
@Matt: Then again though, if he really means "common" in the strict sense (as in statistically frequently used), it could be the way to go. Or would a manually compiled list do (i.e. "common" as in perceived to be common by the authors)? I think that's an important point to clarify.

Some corpus seem to have structured (parsed) data. If you analyze that and extract the frequent phrases, would that do?
