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 Can you use multiple を in one sentence?
Could someone please explain the downvote? It's harmful to downvote without telling the poster what they did wrong.

comment How to call the phenomenon where a rectangle Ϳ is shown because font misses glyph?
It's an interesting idea, but it seems too specific to only the ones with numbers within the rectangle. The empty rectangles are quite common, even more than the number ones for me. (I just realized that I don't even know what to call this in English...)

comment How often is だが used in everyday conversation?
I think it could might help your answer if you elaborate on what style/level of speaker would use だが

So I probably shouldn't use them for something formal?

comment Is ほんの一瞬【いっしゅん】だけ redundant?
@sawa I created this thread because, despite the number Google gave me, I was still unsure about using it. I stated this in my original question. I used Google as a resource (researching my question before asking like I'm supposed to), not as an absolute truth.

comment Is ほんの一瞬【いっしゅん】だけ redundant?
@sawa I didn't know that I couldn't trust Google's number result. But I still agree that the snarkiness was unnecessary, especially since I did nothing wrong really.

comment Why is English “ka” and “ca” sometimes rendered as キャ (kya) instead of カ (ka)?
Amazing. It makes a lot of sense, but I don't think my own Japanese teacher would've been able to give me this answer...

comment How to differentiate friend level in Japanese?
+1 for not only the list but for prefacing the list with some information. (Sometimes pure list answers seem so dry...)

comment With MS IME, how do I type パーティー?
I have a feeling this question is going to get closed since it's not really about language, but here's an answer... If you're typing based on romaji, then you can type "xi" or "li" or "lyi" I think. If you use a Japanese keyboard layout, then I'm not completely sure...
