comment “Possession” of time: 時間 or 時?
someone might formulate an answer, but in the meantime you can look up sample sentences on alc.co.jp or jisho.org and see the different usages for yourself.

Thank you for your effort, but why answer with an assumption? I appreciate the extra eye idiom, though.

If you found the sentence you quoted, could you provide the preceding and following sentences as well as any provided translation, if there was one.

Edited for tense= is this a good translation? "In relation to Jehovah, what truth was emphasized?"

comment Etymology of 小説
I think your answer is accurate except for the last part. Did you not explain that it is not a literal translation of the English word "novel"?

comment Can someone explain the form: xに関するどんな
@Chocolate, how would that work? This sounds wrong to me--エホバについての事実を強調しましたか。 Doesn't it need the どんな somewhere?

comment Can someone explain the form: xに関するどんな
Is エホバに関する really modifying 事実? I ask because if you remove どんな I think the sentence does not make sense...but maybe my line of thinking is flawed.

comment Are there stereotypical speech patterns or inflections associated with gay Japanese speakers?
@jmac, I addressed that in my comment, but both Matsuko and Mitsu are gay transvestites/crossdressers. And though Mitsu speaks in a masculine tone I have assuredly heard him use feminine patterns.

@Nathan, I think that you might have some useful questions about 初めて and how it works as an adverb that might be beneficial to ask.

comment Simple questions on 明け方
I had thought it was the meaning of kata meaning 様子 but when I looked it up, this was not listed on tangorin so perhaps it is their inadequacy that caused my confusion. Thanks for your work.
