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 Meaning and level of 死ねばいいのに
Actually the OP leaves out a subject. It could have been metaphorical, referring to a problem or something. "Man I wish that problem would just die/go away". I don't think shinu HAS to be used with people specifically (though it usually is)

comment About 「同じ」 {onaji} and 「同じく」 {onajiku}
You're right on the meaning of "onajiku", but I'm not sure you can use onajiku as an adjectival noun like "onaji". I think it has to be used as an adverb?

comment What is the difference between 「ほど」 {hodo} and 「ぐらい」 {gurai}?
That's also correct - but I think that's another usage of "hodo", again, as "extent". Oh, and it's "2メートルごろ"

comment How should I select what first-person pronoun to use?
(Re-read your comment - I probably got away with 僕 because I was at a gaishi, not a Japanese company)

comment Which verbs have 辞書形 (dictionary forms) that look like ~ます conjugations?
We may want to community wiki this one over time - seems like a good question where examples will continue to pile up!
