comment What makes 『青年』 and 『少年』 different?
@sova I think the use of 青 is meant to evoke spring, as in 青春, not lack of ripeness. (Well, not directly, anyway. Of course spring itself evokes lack of ripeness.)

comment Does Japanese use litotes?
I'm not sure the length of the Wikipedia article is a super useful metric; Japanese is fairly compact as a language to begin with, and the English article is kind of all over the place.

comment Apparently unrelated 音読み?
@broccoliforest I'd call both minor drift, I guess? 立 has the whole ラ行 thing going for it, and whatever you think of ニ vs ジ, the rhythm and final consonant ties ニチ and ジツ together well enough.

comment Apparently unrelated 音読み?
@broccoliforest Well, to me, something like 九: キュウ/ク seems essentially identical; 聞: モン/ブン seems like minor drift, and 回: カイ/エ seems completely unrelated. (I should say 'seemed', understanding that 回 was originally クヮイ/ヱ helps narrow the gap.)

@broccoliforest My question might have been a bit poorly phrased, but to call it unanswerable is patently false: It has already gotten two good answers.

comment Old japanese translation
The issue with the photo is not just one of resolution, the lighting and angle makes the second line really hard to read.

comment Old japanese translation
@blutorange Nice find, but that page appears to be in reference to a pot for tea craft, as evidenced by 茶道具. Also, I don't think the second character in the name reasonably could be 岡, the sweep of the legs is all wrong. What is really needed is a better photo.
