I always yell as loud as I can until the police show up.

comment Difference between ともあれ and とかく
I'm confused. Why did you include ともすれば and なお? Are you wanting to know how those relate too, or just ともあれ and とかく?

comment も particle after an adverb
Do you have more context for this? It will make it easier to answer.

comment How do you express “try”?
Hmm, that's exactly but I wanted to post as an answer, but I doubted myself. Glad to see I was on the right track.

comment How to say “To familiarise onself with”
Your example sentence sounds a little rough to me. I'd say 内容を調べておきたい instead of 知りたい, and 見せていただいたらありがたいです. But maybe that's just me.

comment Do people use まい?
I've heard people use it in real life.

comment Using で instead of に with いる
@dainichi: Yes, in the case of asking the question クモを見ると良いことがあると言う人はいますか?, then the response would be 日本にはいますよ。, but that is a different context than the original sentence.

comment Using で instead of に with いる
I don't know what NP or PP is. Nor do I know what you mean by "marked", but that sentence came straight out of the Progressive dictionary (except that I accidentally typed 京都 instead of 東京).

comment ご~いただけます vs. ご~になれます
This got downvoted? Haha, I'm not even mad about it, so much as I am stupefied by the failure in logic of whoever did it. The summary I provide is from a dictionary article on this exact topic. How is that, in any way, considered "not useful" (the text on the downvote button)?

comment Is there a reliable translation of the kangxi radicals?
As far as studying more "complex" kanji, I personally wouldn't worry about learning the meanings of the radicals except for the ones that are themselves a "full" kanji (土, 木, 日, 米, etc.) Knowing that 癶 is translated as "foot steps" doesn't help me decipher the meaning of 発. Whereas knowing the meanings of 氵 and 土 do help me decipher what 池 and 地 mean. My $0.02.
