I have been a Tokyo resident for 6 years; I've studied Japanese for 10.

My company Long Weekend LLC develops Awesome mobile software, including Japanese Flash, the best iOS Japanese vocabulary study tool out there. We also develop Rikai Browser, which allows you to translate Japanese words on web pages in realtime on iOS (may be very good for reading this site!).

comment What is the difference between その and あの?
@Mark, not sure. I agree with the OP - I learned (although could be wrong!) that ano was more for a shared experience. "Ano" when it's not a shared experience when storytelling would make it sound more like you're recalling it to yourself (as part of the story) -- which could work, but I'd usually say sono.

comment In modern usage how do Japanese natives regard the differences between 外人, 外国人 and 外人さん?
Ditto, I feel like the Japanese person I am speaking to is out of touch if they refer to gaijin-san

I thought "Ateji" was 宛て字? Seems like both come up in my IME..

comment What's the difference in usage and nuance between やはり and やっぱり?
Wasn't aware of the stronger sense. That would make sense why I don't hear やっぱり used to superiors.

comment About 「同じ」 {onaji} and 「同じく」 {onajiku}
Nah, I think onajiku is an adverb. Usually it comes at the beginning - as you noted, and thus seems like a conjunction -- but in business speech it often comes in the middle in a sentence, I feel.

comment What are other language equivalents to Japanese particles?
If we're speaking Canadian English, "ne" could be approximated with "eh?"
