comment Why isn't ある's negative form あらない?
@blutorange: Maybe, but if I recall (it's been a while since I played it), the context in which that was said during the game was not a "well wishing" one.

In the game Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, if you change the games's dialogue to Japanese, one of the NPC's says to the protagonist Shanoa, あなたには光があらん.

comment What's the difference between 広める 広げる and 広まる 広がる?
OK, maybe I'd just never heard those used before. Still sounds weird to me, though.

Using these verbs for the spread of a virus sounds wrong to me. I think only 伝える・伝わる works for this. Do you have any sources that this is valid?

comment What is 「何しに」 in 「YOUは何しに日本へ?」
@dimadesu: No, re-read the answer. It's <verb stem> + に. So it would be 食べに行きます. This is incidental to する (します).

comment What's the equivalent to densha, futsuu, tokkyuu, and kyuukou in the West?
@Tim: See my comment above for why I voted to close. Because it is about a cultural comparison. If the question is edited to focus more on the meanings of the individual types, I'll vote to reopen.

comment When is a door a ドア and when is it a [扉]{とびら}?

@jmac: You forgot the K 特急 on the Keihan line! Also, +1 for Osaka!

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a cultural comparison, not directly about any facet of the Japanese language.
