comment What's the short way to say “me too” and “me (n)either”?
@snailboat: "Irregardless" is also common, but that doesn't make it a real word. To each his own I guess.

I don't think Xもです is grammatical.

comment which are the technical names for these verb transforms?
@kinyo: Sounds about right. Here's what my dictionary says. 使役の助動詞「させる」の未然形+受身の助動詞「られる」.

comment 「たくさん」 is technically, but not practically, a na-nominal (形容動詞) , right?
I've never heard たくさん; only たくさん.

I'd never heard the term 受動態 before, but apparently they are equivalent. The though means "form", so 受動態 seems like the more general "passive voice".

Why do you think it is "usually" written in kana? I see it written with kanji all the time.

comment How do 自他 triplets of related verbs work?
@Tim: Thanks for the correction. I guess I was misinformed about つなぐ. Does つかむ・つかまる・つかまえる really fit the pattern though? It seems like the third one should be つかる instead of つかまえる, but maybe that's just an exceptional formation. Anyway, I cover that whole bag of bones from another angle here: Fun with synonyms - “to grab/catch/capture”.

comment Use of と in this sentence
I wouldn't say と is usually "and". I would call this と something like the "consequential-と". Although it's not in the question, it is addressed in the accepted answer in this post: Differences among -たら、なら、-んだったら、-えば, etc.
