comment What does MC mean in Japanese?
@moai-kun - MC is still used native English but its usage depends upon where you are, in some native English speaking countries it has fallen out of use were as in others is of limited use to concert performances.

comment Who scolded whom in Aに怒られる?
@sawa - I'm with @Dave in regards to that to the language ability of the average Japanese person, knowing the grammar of a language is not the same as being functional in a language and most native speakers of a language can't really explain the how or why the grammar of a language works. This is part of the reason why people that go for a TOEFL course end up saying they learned things about English that they never knew.

@Amanda S - The edit was intended as a clarification of the original question, from my standpoint, a new question on the same topic would be redundant.

comment Is the use of 先生 and similar titles context sensitive?
Ah, yes, and this is a bit more what I was driving at in the question. The teacher-student relationship is pretty obvious on school grounds and the like but outside of school or in collegiate situations where you might work in several different situations with someone it seems to get a bit more complex.

comment Is the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) a good measure of my Japanese language ability?
@Dave M G - The site is still a bit too new to have a firm yes or no for most questions, your best bet is to either start a new thread with the allowed-questions tag specific to this question or find a similar one to add it to.

@Dave M G - This isn't the place to discuss the validity of a question but that should be done on Meta instead.
