comment When is 行く pronounced as いく, and when is it ゆく?
Something interesting I've seen. ゆく and いく are considered a distinct separate readings of 行く, and not just some kind of dialectical pronunciation or euphonic change (音便). When I lived in Japan, I was watching one of those "variety" shows. They were talking about the kanji(s) with the most readings (the most being I believe). Anyway, the contestants had to collectively produce all the readings for each one. When doing , they left out ゆく and were surprised to learn that いく and ゆく were in fact different.

comment Difference between 〜っぽい, 〜がち, and 〜やすい?
Is 忘れやすい even correct to apply to a person? It seems like it should apply to the thing. 忘れやすい名前, 忘れやすい顔, etc.

comment Can ことはない be used to express something other than 'you don't have to'?
The key is that when the preceding verb is in the 〜た form, it takes on the meaning of "have (not) done" (depending on if it's ことはある or ことはない).

comment What are the various uses of あまり?
Welcome to JL&U. This question is really vague, so please refine it to something more specific. For example, you might explain why it is confusing to you, and how you have tried to use it.
