๐ŸŒ. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment Is accent position predictable for -i verbs in Osaka/Kansai?
@Teno: I don't understand what you mean by "the rule can be applied to the other regions"? I'm only talking about Kansai here.

comment Is accent position predictable for -i verbs in Osaka/Kansai?
@Teno: Well, they pattern as verbs and they end in -i, so it's as good a name as any. Japanese doesn't really have adjectives as a lexical class.

comment Repeating the vowel sound of the mora that precedes gemination in songs
Maybe "singing with a syllabic glottal stop[...]"? That would require devoicing the entire syllable, which would obviously mess up the melody.
