comment What is 引っ越しハガキ?
I wish I could +2 this: 1 for the example picture, and 1 for [都島区]{みやこ・じま・く} in 大阪 because I used to live like 5 minutes from that address.

comment 出身はどこ vs. どこの出身
FWIW, どこ出身(ですか)? is very casual and frequently used.

comment What is シ●ブ, and why is it censored?
Apparently, it's really bad if kids get to see a slang term for drug spelt out on a subway ad, but totally fine if they get their fill of half-naked, boob-cupping, barely-legal models on the same ad. This. And not just for Japan.

comment chart for interrogative words
どの is not limited to 2 choices (どの季節が一番好きですか?). You were probably thinking of どっち. 何故 is also (and I think more modernly) read as なぜ.

comment Please help me understand [予習]{よ・しゅう}
@Tim: That's exactly part of the confusion. When the review of what you've learned is also preparation for the next, which word do you use in Japanese?

FWIW, that's the exact sentence I came up with in my head after just reading the title.

comment How do you say “I worked for [X company].”?
I've never heard 〜で勤める, and it sounds incorrect to my ear, but that's not to say it is.

comment Difference between かおり and におい
@dainichi: But isn't it similar to saying something like 青い目をしている子 (The girl with ["that has"] blue eyes)?

comment Do Japanese have a similar expression for “the list goes on”?
@TokyoNagoya: What is something better? I was going for something like "bounced" around between different ideas.

comment How to say “Is it worth a visit?”
@TokyoNagoya: Hence the part where I said, I don't know how (un)natural it might sound.
