comment Understanding the subtleties behind [noun]する vs [noun]だ
@blutorange No, I'll leave it, that's an important point about mobile support. There's a vote for block quotes only used for longer Japanese passages, but I think your edit is a visual improvement too (not just a necessity for bold and italic keywords). Thanks again.

comment Difference between verb ~ている + (瞬間・とき)
@Johji If you're asking about the time-based relation, it's not clear without a complete sentence. As is, I think it would be more clearly temporally related if it were うえで, because I took those examples to mean "in addition to; on top of...".

comment Is くろじん a word?
@AndrewGrimm Interesting, I wonder which meaning she meant. Gogen has some uncited theories. One uses しろひと and くろひと in an analogous way that reminded me of martial art belt rankings. Here though 黒 would be the root...
