comment Difference between 母語話者 and ネイティブスピーカー
More of a cultural than linguistic question: if my profile on a website had a photo of my tall, white, and handsome self, and indicated that I'm Australian, would the average Japanese person assume that I'm a native speaker of English?

comment Why is ホワイト spelled as it is?
I'm doubtful about some of the info in this answer. Wiktionary says that ガラス comes from the Dutch word glas, rather than English.

comment How to tell if a word is Sino-Japanese or Yamato
@Earthliŋ what I know about Japanese is largely based on what I've learnt in the classroom (I'm half way through JFBP II), what I've come across on Japanese SE, and what I came across on the tv version of 日本人の知らない日本語. If there's a naive answer, it's probably what I'm after.

comment Is くろじん a word?
Not really relevant, but according to Liza Dalby 玄人{くろうと} is a word, and that word gave rise to はくじん (which I think is written 白人 based on the disambiguation at ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%99%BD%E4%BA%BA ).
