comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
[As to why you'd want to "roll on the floor laughing" in the context of declining an invitation, I don't have a definitive answer] -- Why not, people use LOL in English for everything these days, even things that aren't funny at all.

comment Etymology of それはそうと

comment Etymology of それはそうと
It seems quite literal to me. 「それはそう」is "that's that (way)", 「と」is "and". "Well that's that, and ...." So it makes sense to mean "by the way".

revised Expressing the “after [verb]-ing”, using 後で, -てから, 後に, 後から?
Using HTML bolding since markdown bolding doesn't work with kana.

ルビー is the same as ふりがな.

But even if you gave something to show how to pronounce 加油, how would that help the person in knowing how to pronounce がんばって?

OK, I think I understand better now. Sort of like an international ルビー, right?

Does kana itself not fulfill that role? They tell you exactly how to pronounce the sound, and if you show someone a kanji with the kana (ルビー), they'll know exactly how to read/pronounce the kanji. Maybe I'm missing something here...

revised Can のほうが be omitted when answering a question?
Using quote markdown instead of the code markdown so long sentences don't produce scrollbars
