comment How should I choose between [知]{し}る and わかる?
To be honest I don't think that's the point at all. わかる has always a hint of "I can distinguish, understand, perceive it" while 知る is about knowledge/experience/memory. Natives say it's they're using different parts of the brain, if this can help.

comment Redistributable Anthology of Haiku or Tanka in Electronic Form
Tatoeba project did review many of the tanaka corpus sentences. I also used it alot and I didn't find any wrong sentences. Of course they are just translations of examples so sometimes are not what a native speaker would use. Still very instructive to learn grammar.

comment How would one convey “get over it” in Japanese?
I heard ごちそうさま used when someone was bragging about oneself. Note also that what's bragging for Japanese people could be perfectly normal "self-assessment" for westerns.

comment Confusion about “Seemingly not ~”
:) well only the にもない thingy it's still unclear. My native said it's bit unusual and formal but not wrong.

comment way to use さっぱり (sappari) and すっかり (sukkari)
I'd like some examples of different use (other than 忘れる・わかる) of すっかり and さっぱり to figure out what the difference between them.

comment When to use だ before と思います。
I think キレイ alone is correct, not very polite but grammatically correct Japanese. For sure you can hear a lot. My personal thinking is that na-adjective are more like weak nouns than real adjective. See also timwerx.net/language/jpadj/lesson1.htm
