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 「様」vs「殿」, which is more respectful?
It seems like the first site is saying that 殿 is more respectful mostly because you don't HAVE to use it, so when you do use it, it seems very respectful because you are putting in extra effort. That's just how I interpreted their explanation though.

comment Why are there two words 算数 and 数学 representing different fields?
Personally, I think there's a lot of difference between the English math fields you mentioned... Especially since I'm really good at some and terrible at others.

comment Why does 音物【いんもつ】 contain 音?
@Dono Sorry, didn't know it had another reading/writing. I heard it in a song as いんもつ and looked up the lyrics to see it written as 音物.

comment Was 俺 ever gender-neutral?
It's good that you've gone to the effort of finding this info, but unfortunately having it only in Japanese makes it inaccessible to many people on this site. I hope someone will translate it.

comment Is 「3人いるだと」 grammatical?
Ah, I see. I was just reminding you in case you forgot the original question when typing your explanation of 何だと.

comment Is 「3人いるだと」 grammatical?
You might want to also answer the original question of whether or not it's grammatical or at least frequently used. :)

comment Did ありがとう come from Portuguese “obrigado”?
@AndrewGrimm While I agree with your comment, you might want to re-word since it confused me at first! I thought you were saying "they better keep making this claim" as in they SHOULD keep making this claim rather than what I would hope is your intended meaning of that it's common for knowledgeable people to make this claim.

comment Why do TV subtitles use spaces (instead of commas)?
Honestly, I'm not terribly concerned over this question, but it seems like a lot of effort was put into finding examples for/against the theory. So +1 from me.

comment Are most counter words made up of two parts? What are those two parts called?
It might help if you say which word means what so that people don't have to go look up the words elsewhere.
