comment Homographs: how to deal with them?
Note that ついたち has its own special kanji that can be used: 朔【ついたち】 or 朔日【ついたち】. Although I don't know how (un)commonly they may be used. As for the disambiguation, I think the context of where they appear should be enough.

comment What is the difference between がる and ぎみ?
Hmm, I agree with @TsuyoshiIto. I don't see them as even close at all. But I've never thought of an overlap amongst them, so maybe they are easily mistaken by some people.

comment What is the difference between がる and ぎみ?
Why did you even bring up まみれ and だれけ? They were not part of the initial question and are introducing more confusion.

comment Making a sentence that ends in なかった polite
Not true about i-adjectives. A more polite negative form is ~くありません(でした). Ex.: いい -> よくありません(でした).

comment 寝る vs. 眠る, what's the real difference?
@Axioplase - logically, touche. From a natural language standpoint, I don't think a lot of people would read it that way.

comment 寝る vs. 眠る, what's the real difference?
Do you mean "Does not necessarily imply you sleep"? Because it can mean "to sleep, not be awake".

revised 寝る vs. 眠る, what's the real difference?
@sawa, your edit changed absolutely nothing about the meaning of my post. It wasn't incorrect content, there were no typos, etc. You shouldn't be allowed to edit something just because my style of "speech" is different than yours.

Why does typing '!!' in the topic title convert it to a '?' ?
