comment Does 寒気がする really mean “have a chill” or is it just cold?
Does 寒気(さむけ) overlap with 悪寒 then? Although I don't think 悪寒 implies having a fever/cold, does it?

So "have a chill" = "spine-tingling" in that sense. I wonder how many dictionaries have that as part of the definition.

comment Difference between 〜といい〜といい & 〜といわず〜といわず
Upvoting and starring this question. I remember I had a hell of a time trying to figure this out when I studied it. It's been a while, so I'll have to look at it again before (if) I can give an answer. Also, why do all the good questions get asked when I have no time to answer them?

comment X is near or next to Y. Is my understanding of this correct?
@dotnetN00b: I've never heard that usage for となり. I think you're either mistaken on it, or it's some slang I'm not familiar with. Here's a reference to what I thought you were talking about.

となり (隣) means "next to". It is not と+なり, which, based on your question, seems like what you were thinking.

comment I don't understand the meaning of the 2 sentences. Can somebody help me?
@yadokari: I know what it means, but I thought it was more of an objective description, like "mentally insane". I never knew it was derogatory.

It's limited. There should be a help button when editing that shows what you can use.

I edited it. You have to use HTML tags to format kana. It shows fine while you're editing, but it doesn't work correctly for some reason.

comment How do you write the sound “wu”?
OK, but what about the name "Swoozie" like I asked, where the sound is in the middle of the word? Following that rule, it would be スージー, which sounds more like the female name "Suzie". It doesn't give the "push" of the 'w'. Maybe スゥージー?

comment Difference between kara and n desu?
I never learned 〜からです in textbooks. The first one I learned was 〜ですから. My beginner courses used "Japanese For Busy People", so anyone else using that will probably not encounter it, unless they've added it to the revised editions.

@ssb: Usually it's questions answers that the finder participated in. Or, search function.
