comment Problems with は and が
Thank you for your verification. I will remove that part from my question accordingly. But still the question of whether 猫は好きです is ambiguous or not remains.

comment Problems with は and が
@DaveMG. Yes perhaps I phrased my question poorly. I meant to convey that the sentence I'm presenting was inspired(for lack of a better word) by a previous sentence. Instead of taking it directly.

comment Problems with は and が
@DaveMG Yes that was the OP's question. But I was actually referring to sawa's answer and building on from there - "私は先生が猫[が/を]好きだと思います". I figured that to be less complicated I should understand it without と思う first.

comment Action verbs and conditional ~ば
@edwinbradford. It's alright, in fact it's better to wait until you find an answer that suits you. Actually I'm not satisfied with my answer either, there's this concept that I'm failing to convey that I can't properly turn it into words.

comment Spelling over the phone
+1 Interesting question. For all the mora I can just simply read it out except for っ/ッ. I wonder what happens when I want to "spell" a gemination...

comment Does なかなか (with negative verb) mean “by no means” or “considerably”?
@TsuyoshiIto &sawa, Is this field of study mathematics or a form of linguistic/syntax notation?

comment The various ways of saying “all”
I thought that Sino-Japanese words (like 全部) are normally more likely to be used in writing? Perhaps it's just a misconception on my part.

comment How to use the inflection “やがる”?
@sawa. It's okay if they're technical, I'll just have to learn more things then. Unfortunately, "Introduction to Japanese Phonology" is not available in my local bookshops and libraries. (Published in 1986 so I guess it's pretty hard to find it now). Oh well, looks like I have to have it shipped. Thanks for the recommendations.
