comment Can you use 持つ to mean 'to wait'?
Your sentence is much like: Would you like to put this reservation on hold until next Wednesday? It's the concept of waiting or biding time. As opposed to actually/physically holding something. Maybe 待つ is used for that colloquialism/idiom as well.

"assuming that you aren't constructing an embedded clause"... well since we're on the subject, how would the sentence look if that was the case (in an embedded sentence)?

comment What's the equivalent to densha, futsuu, tokkyuu, and kyuukou in the West?
@Earthling It sounds like, according to your description, there's no difference between a 特急 and a 急行. They seem to do the same thing.

Isn't 欲しがる for another person's desires? Maybe 欲する is for your own desires.

comment How to say “you may not [verb] here”?
@Chocolate I thought that those who have responded to the thread would be notified automatically of the changes. ごめんなさい。However if you have any answers or comments to my new questions, I'd be happy to receive them.

comment Is “anyone” 人はいます or 誰でも?
I've learned that がいます=There is. But if there is no difference between the particle use of は and が、then ok.

comment Is “anyone” 人はいます or 誰でも?
I thought that if 人はいます is translated to "is anyone", then 花はいます would also be translated to "is any flower".

comment When to use 洗濯する and 洗う?
@user1205935 Your example sentences didn't work. Also, when I used it to look up sentaku, I got the same definitions as I got with the other site.

comment When to use 洗濯する and 洗う?
Well I wrote: washing OR laundering clothes. I thought 洗濯 and 洗濯する could be used in both ways, since that's how the dictionaries define 洗濯. Here's an example. And yes, I did mean 洗濯する. Thank you.
