atlantiza / アトランチザ

I studied Japanese on my own to some degree for about 5 years. This year, I have finally enrolled in a Japanese course at college. I plan to ask some of my questions on the Japanese Stack Exchange as to not bother my teacher too much with questions unrelated to our current studies... I'm also a Linguistics major, so I may browse the Linguistics Stack Exchange from time to time. Hopefully I will be asking and answering there too one day!

5年ぐらい自分で日本語を勉強しました。今年、終に大学の日本語のクラスに登録しました。色々な質問が先生の迷惑になっていませんのために、日本語のスタックエクスチェンジで時々質問します。大学の専攻は言語学ですから、たまに言語学のスタックエクスチェンジも読みます。何時か言語学のスタックエクスチェンジで質問も答えもしたいです。

comment How can I say “counted in (specific unit)”?
@TsuyoshiIto I believe they are both asking the same thing still. I did not want to know how to say "a few months". I would have asked specifically for that if it's what I wanted it. I have no intention of arguing with you about the meaning of my post though, especially after I already apologized for possible confusion. A hostile environment is not good for any site.

@user1205935 If you'd add this to your answer, I would be more than glad to accept it.

@TsuyoshiIto It is the same as what I originally asked just with different words. I'm sorry if I created any misunderstanding.

This is helpful information, but not quite what I was looking for. Maybe it would make more sense with this situation: Someone learning Japanese cannot remember what counter word is used for sheets of paper. Of course, you could just say 「枚」 but if you wanted to create a full sentence out of this, how would you say "Sheets of paper are counted in 枚"?

comment Did any writing systems exist before kanji was imported?
Some of this is from "common sense"? Really...?

comment Can I say 行ってきます if I don't plan to come back?
You might want to add whether or not you want your listener to know that you're not returning :)

comment How to form the “chi” sound, and others?
Just in case anybody is wondering, "to" and "cho" are two completely separate sounds (besides the fact that they end with an "o" sound) in all romanization methods that I've seen. "to" is と and "cho" is ちょ.

comment When Chinese personal names are written in Japanese in kanji is there always an obvious reading?
@Pacerier If you're talking about the name of some place that you own (shop, restaurant, etc.) then I do believe that you could do this.
