comment what's a ポッカリ (pokkari)?
Since sometimes onomatopoeia morph to have the small っ (e.g., やはり→やっぱり), does this come from the form ポカリ, and if so, is it the same one as Pokari Sweat?

comment Expressing 'if so'
@Earthlin: the "as" can be seen often in the form 〜として (「〜の資格で」; see examples in definition #1 here). The supposition/assumption case can be seen in ex. 815 here.

comment Why do some loanword sounds get “abbreviated” when katakanized, but not others?
I don't know where you're from, but I disagree with you about "menu" and "piano". I definitely pronounce them as "men-you" and "pya-no" resp., and not just to play devil's advocate. And FWIW, I always enunciate the /h/ "wh" words. :D

@Tim: Not "why don't they match my pronunciation", but rather "why are the "rules" inconsistent"?

comment How do you say “My skills in programming languages are Javascript, Zend framework, Yii framework, etc”?
構築 indicates physical construction or building, so I don't think it would be used in relation to software development. Unless this is some set phrase or 専門用語 that I've never heard before.

comment How do you say “My skills in programming languages are Javascript, Zend framework, Yii framework, etc”?
Do you mean A, B, C, and D are different programming languages, or they are concepts of programming (OOP, AI, Web applications, etc.)?

comment Verb used for “being in a class”
Just so I'm clear, by "taking" do you mean "currently sitting in", or just "enrolled in"?
