comment why does “ら” follow “山中{やまなか}” here: “山中ら、予備検診{よびけんしん}で異常{いじょう}なし”
Also because newspaper headlines must be short.

comment Why was 邪 chosen to spell the names of 伊邪那岐神 and 伊邪那美神 in the 古事記?
It's odd to state that Nihon Shoki was for an international audience, though, because it's more explicit that it contains variant accounts of history. One would think that the foreign-facing book would present a standard, unified view.

comment Translating 世界中 in this context, does it literally refer to the “entire world”?
Good use of 新明解国語辞典.

comment What does “mononoke” mean?
@Trevor: Hate to point this out but もののけ could also be heard as 物の気, which opens up a whole different can of worms.

comment Can this incredibly complex sentence be simplified?
Thank you, this is a good stab at it. For the shortened sentence, I was thinking along the lines of "we've become able to see that these problems which seemed separate can be generally unified." Your translation of というようなことがある is helpful but I can't quite plug it in there.

comment How should say I: 僕、俺、私?
Also, in writing it's generally safe to use 自分, although you don't see this in spoken conversation.

comment Is Taito (たいと) (kanji/kokuji with the highest stroke count consisting of 84 strokes) legit and ever used?
Belated comment, but there do exist some weird surnames like this, with unregistered kanji that are never reported to the government. This one in particular is just a little too much like an urban legend.

Although 全然大丈夫 was unacceptable 20 years ago, it was acceptable 60 years ago and used among old people.
