comment Expressing “don't work too hard”
You have a point, I don't think you would here anyone saying "You've been working so hard lately, why don't you just take it easy" in Japanese. Whenever I heard 無理しないで it was more in the context of "I know this is a really difficult task, don't kill yourself trying to get it done in one go".

I answered that from my own personal experiences, but apparently that thingy has a name, 長音符{ちょうおんぷ}, but I couldn't tell you if that's what you'd say when spelling something out. Here's the Wikipedia article on it: ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%95%B7%E9%9F%B3%E7%AC%A6

@atlantiza I was thinking about that too...I'm much less confident on this account, but I'm pretty sure it's something along the lines of のびる or のばす....saying you're stretching it out. 「ザ、伸びして」 If it were in hiragana you would just double the vowel sound, making it two clear sounds...so it would probably be understood that way too. 「ザ、ア」

So you're saying replacing の with が would make it essentially 「彼女が態度」 which is a bit odd.
