comment Why do we use 〜ないで instead of 〜なくて before auxiliary ください?
as a separate note, my grammar dictionary notes that ~なくて has a stronger causal link than ~ないで to whatever comes after it.

comment Name/Title at the end of a sentence. Vocative case?
How did that website translate my highlighted portion to "as a Undine" and "as Undines". Did they treat it as nominative case? There seems to be some elision that I cannot figure out.

comment Extracting from, and introducing to Universe of Discourse using は and が with こそあど-demonstratives

@ZarNge perhaps a new question? I think the comments section is not big enough to explain the differences in the above 4 you mentioned.

@MathewD the 2 variations of 冷 is already very little compared to how different characters can be in different writing styles.

comment Particle-が in restaurant's name. Genitive particle?
So according to modern formation rules, it would be 星の岡 instead? And also is "starry hill" a good translation?

comment Can と and を be interchanged with 思う the way I think they can?
I've only ever seen a と思う pattern in my studies. Not sure about を or other particles. I'll probably leave this one for more qualified people to answer.
