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。

I was having a bit of trouble thinking of an example sentence to use, and I just ended up with that. It's interesting that it sounds odd to you though.

comment I can't stand 立つ【た・つ】: Do all its meanings derive from “stand”?
This is a great post, but I'm a bit confused about the "English" part of it. To me (native English speaker, if it matters), "stand" is exactly what you describe and draw たつ as. I don't think I've ever thought of it as a downward motion. Am I the only one who thinks this way...?

comment What is the difference between いえ and うち?
OK, I think I'm starting to get it... Would it be safe to assume that うち generally has a somewhat positive connotation, while いえ is neutral (home vs. house, where in English home seems to be a warmer word)?

So, if you are going to a friend's house/home, would you say 友達のいえに行きます? Would it be unnatural to say 友達のうちに行きます?
