comment difference between きれい and キレイ
I'd like to add that it's really an over-simplification to say that katakana is used for loanwords. It can be used for a lot of things in addition to that, like emphasis like ヒカルさん has said, and animal and plant names.

comment How to say “Should we [do something]?”
@Leo, thanks :) And yes, the volitional. There's a shorter, casual version of it too, once you get used to the long version. (よう・おう)

comment Use of a comma to separate a single word
That does seem to be what he's doing, using it how we in English might use quotes, but I wanted to keep the question as open-ended as I could :)

comment Use of も in this sentence.
I think what he's saying is that the "everything else" is implied. You could also say something like "places like the pubs and city center"

comment Have a trouble with まで
My first instinct would be that it means something similar to what we would say in English when we say "I've had it up to here!" (まで meaning "up to" in this case.)

comment Don't undestand this particular use of ない form
Well explained :) I would just add that using ない is a common, casual way of inviting someone to do something.

comment Why would one use 当て字?
From my impression of it, new uses of 当て字 are few and far between, but they used to be a lot more common, and what we see are hold-overs from that.

comment What does これも at the start of a sentence mean?
It may just be my English brain protesting the start of a sentence with an "Also", but here is the context: 今の文学青年はセンチメンタルになることを怖れている。これも傷つけられるのを怖れる一種のさもしい心のあらわれかも知れない。
