No problem. At the time I edited, you already had 2 or 3 upvotes, so apparently no one else noticed either. :D

comment Horizontal writing in the middle of vertical writing
My confusion with writing direction naming comes from the fact that one of the "tokens" means "direction within a line", and the other means "layout of lines on the page", and depending on which you think comes first out of the two drastically changes your understanding of it. For me, "left-to-right, top-to-bottom" means "Lines are laid out on the page from left to right, and the text in a line flows from top to bottom". But others might take it the other way. I found this for some clarification, but I don't know how "official" it is.

Yes, it's 24. That means Fumie Kato is 24 years old.

@Tim: that's what the search box is for.

Voting to close as duplicate of Why did の disappear from 山手, but in 御茶ノ水 it's in katakana?

comment Is 感じる {かんじる} transitive or intransitive? Which particle to use?
Apparently が is also a contender according to this paper.

I would say に is used to say how you feel, and を is used to say what you feel. But this is just my hypothesis.

により is just the 連用形 of による. And remember that using 連用形 as a connector is slightly more formal than using the て-form, so semantically により is equivalent to によって (as @cypher mentions in their answer). That's why it's not 電話より通報する.

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?

Do you have more context for this? It will make it easier to answer.
