I'm curious as to why this answer was downvoted. If it's wrong, incorrect somewhere, or poorly written, then please explain why. In the meanwhile, I'll upvote.

comment Is there a difference between きらい and がすきではありません?
I would say it's a difference of degree. It's the same difference as saying, I don't like fish. and I hate fish. respectively.

comment How do you say “I worked for [X company].”?
Is there a difference between using で働いた or に働いた? Any nuances? And you could use で勤つとめる or would that be strange sounding?

comment How would one emulate capitalized letters in Japanese?
I don't think any of the obvious choices, using カタカナ. I've been under the impression that カタカナ can be an equivalent of capital letters in english. Was that never the case?

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)?
